If you have been following my blog or just visit it from time to time, you know that I love making books. I have been doing this for over 13 years...wow, where does the time go? Any hoo, I like to change it up from time to time. Lately, for the past few nights as I lay in bed, I kept having this darn image popping in my head and finally, I decided to get up and do something about it and this is what I came up with.
I wanted to do a wall hanging that incorporated a book. Not a large book, but something that you could use to record a special day, event, write a short love note to that special someone, scrapbook in, etc., you get the point. I also, like to make the eye see one thing, but when you start looking you see something totally different.
So, I created a wall hanging from canvas, but incorporated a vintage box that houses the mini book. I added my vintage laces and materials to give it that special Nellie touch.
I love the writing on the inside of this book cover. The cover comes from a book dated, 1860.
I have listed this in my etsy.
