Mixed Media Art Book

I´ve been working on a little
Art Book these last couple of days

The base is an old phot album I found at the flea
a long time ago.

This is the first page.
The album was filled with old photos
I pulled them out to use them in the book later.
See the remnants from where the were glue in

using some of my vintage fabric
and old stamps

and a lot of bird images.
I recently found some old book filled with bird drawings
in a second hand store. I´ve been cutting all the image out
of the books, to use them in my art.

(there were tons - I´ve made a few packages with lots of images and
listed them in the shop
if you would like to get your hands on some)

vintage book pages.
And here you can see some of the original
photos from the album.
I´ve incorporated them in my pages.


more details

this is the cover in the making

six pages
collaged on front and back

front cover

It ended up being a bird  and nature 
Mixed Media Art Book

I seems to have a crush for the 
natures theme at the moment.

Have a beautoful day my friends

Lovely journal, thank you for sharing, the way you put all the items together is fascinating.
