ALTERED FLOWER GARDEN



Using a very old leather cover from a bible (bible was not savable) and an image from a vintage greeting card  printed on a linen dinner napkin,  I created this collage "Flower Garden".




The collage has many different items; vintage lace and trims, applique (some has been painted and glittered), bling, tiny pine cones, paper flowers, dried roses and other dried flower items.




Butterflies, dragonflies and a wooden mouse.  
I really love how this turned out.

Thanks for stopping by.

A beautiful way of using a cover especially when a book has seen better days.
Gorgeous mix of laces and flowers.
