Did you wonder what I was going to do
with those book spines...
I use the front and back cover of old books
for backgrounds on my collages.
They are perfect for that.
That leaves me with the spines
and I do find them too pretty to just go in the bin
and what would be more appropriate
to use them for other that
Here´s a bunch of finished bookmarks.
I love how they turned out.
a closeup of the decoration on them.
I used some of my good stuff.
Pretty lace pieces
and some sweet vintage images printed
isn´t it nice to have something pretty to look
at when you open your book to read
I was so lucky to get my hands on some
very pretty bookcovers, and more have just
arrived in the studio.
Love the colors on these old worn books
and I´m definitely going to have several of these in my books.
Some will be listed in the shop too.
I´m busy housekeeping today
getting ready for family visits during Easter.
I´m so looking forward to see them all.
Wishing you all a beautiful day
