I love to read and every now and then I get so wrapped up in a book that I can't put it down to eat, drink or sleep. sometimes, to the books detriment, that means that i spill stuff all over the pages. But to me this does not render the book tossable, it turns it into the perfect art project. Here I have used 3 pages out of one of the many books that has fallen victim to my unsteady hands...
I died three pages various shades, one blue, one green and one pink using Tim Holtz distressing inks. While these were drying I worked on the center tag.
I cut the tag shape using a Colluzle (sp?) and then stamped it with 3404-C, Random Dots using the pink ink I dyed the paper with. I also brushed this ink along the edges of the tag. I did the same to the portion of paper hanging from the tag. Next I gold embossed 7118-I, Queen and colored her with marker. Finally I punched three openings in the tag, one at the top to loop the ribbon through and two at the bottom that I put blue eyelets in so i could hang the saying 7015-G, All I Ask using blue DMC shimmery thread.
Now I layer everything. I placed the tag on the green died book page. Then I cut a strip of toile and sandwiched it between the green and pink book pages. I mounted all this on the blue book page. To finish it all off I added various colored rhinestones.
I hope you enjoy!
