The theme of this book is about always remembering things that touch our lives. Whether that be a friendship, relationship, fragrances, small moments that forever etched into our hearts...I have created a book that allows you to journal, sketch, scrapbook, watercolor into and keep them for safe keeping.
I have built this book from ground up. I have incorporated a number of vintage and commercial goodies.
The covers come from a discarded 1914 book. I have created the spine out of a vintage tattered remnant piece of quilt and incorporated vintage buttons, stitching and ribbon onto it. I have then added 15 pages of stonehenge paper of various sizes to make up this book. If you count the backsides of the pages, that would make 30 pages.
The image is of flowers that grown in my garden. I photographed them and printed it onto fabric. I further enhanced it with acrylics and mediums.
Along with the paper, I have added vintage fabrics, commercial fabrics, vintage buttons, coffee staining some of the pages, stitching, vintage papers, inks and acrylics. I have added a pocket on the inside cover, which will allow you to tuck special trinkets into it for safe keeping. I have also added a vintage doll bisque leg, beads and a silver clay charm that I created with the word, love stamped into it.
I have had customers in the past, that use my books for displays on their coffee tables, mantels, etc. It is a piece of art in itself. Whether you use this to display or for your own personal use, it is a book that will be a treasure for years to come.

If I overcharge you on shipping, I will reimburse you the difference. I will find the cheapest way of mailing possible, but this is a heavy book.
