Pebby's Altered Book

I really wanted to share this lovely altered book with you. It has been made by my Mum (Pebby) she has spent a while on this not really knowing where it was going and then finally the finished project. She bought a book from an second hand book shop (it is Oscar Wilde) anyway the centre was cut out then layers of guesso and paint, stamped and coloured with DI tissue (it is text stamped) and stuck to the book front metallic gold rubbed into it and the bottom corner used texture paste, alcohol ink and embossing powder and charms pushed into it.
The sides and back have been guessod and metallic rubbed and text stamp.
The flowers are coloured with glimmer mists and the centres are handmade by Mum as is the 2.5 ins miniature bear (Oscar) he is designed by Mum and made from mohair and fully jointed.
Mum is a miniature bear artist of some note popular world wide. I am very proud of her and this is a really lovely altered book.
Thanks for looking Hugs Sandra XXX
