Fabric Book 4/4 slot



                                                 Hi everyone,
                                   
                                        Hope you are doing well,
                          I'd like to share some photo's of a present I made.



                         You better pour yourself a huge cup of coffee ,
                                     ( tea or hot chocolate...... : )
                              and be prepared for a Lóóóóóóng
                                  final post of the fabric book
                                I've already been showing you
                                           all pages of..............
                                     in my last three posts .


                    The smallest book is a letter in which I told Doni all about
                                     the personal details I added .

                        In the last page I added a little ' paper and lace book '.

                          Had been looking out for a small book and found ,
                                      in a thrift shop , this music book .
                                    It had just the right size to use here ,
                                           so I started to alter it................


                          Hope you like to see a few photo's of the process....
                               I used blotting paper to soften the pages .
                                    
                                           
                                Now......I know that ( I think ) everyone ,
                         who ever tried to alter a book , faces this problem :

                                   .......... the book doesn't close.............
                          when you want to add 100.000's of pictures  ,
                             lace , ribbons , buttons , beads and pearls....
           
                           So the following will be no surprise to you...............

                                 " MY BOOK DIDN'T CLOSE "..........
                                 
                            and I had to dismantle the whole poor thing ,
                            create a new spine , and start all over again .

                   I 'm sure you totally understand I wasn't in the right mood
                               to make more photo's of the process ,
                        fár to embarassing and I had no time for such thing : ) .

                 But I left a hint for Doni and put the original spine on the back...
                                          like so............. see ??  : )



                        My idea was to really make it look old and 'Shabby'..........
                                      and shabby it got............ !!!!!



                                          but in the end.............
                             I was rather pleased with the result ,
                            so here are the photo's I díd make.......... : )

                 The pictures are some of the wonderful vintage portraits I love ,
                       of some beautiful ladies , brides and wedding couples .


 



















  




  
 



                                     THE END


                                           Hope you enjoyed............          
                              

                                                                          With Love,
                                                                                       Wilma.
