back cover of altered book with theme of romantic era

This altered book has “Romantic Era” as its theme. I made it for a swap at Art for the Creative Mind swap group.

Although the group gives very little detail in terms of expectations for a swap, in this one we were required to create a drawer of some sort.

As you can see from the pictures, I painted the book black using Acrylic paint. I used Graphics 45 scrapbook paper to cover the top and back of the book.

On both the top and back, I used some ecru or tan colored edging to frame the main picture.

On the top, I added some fabric flowers and a white plastic bird.
I added the shoe as a decorative element, but I did not attach it to the book. The shoe is a wedding favor that I have decorated with alcohol ink and fibres. You can find the description of it on this blog post: Altered Art: Wedding Favor Shoes.

I added some ecru lace to the back, and I lined the drawer with the same lace.

I printed a love poem by Elizabeth Barrett Browning onto vellum and rolled it up as shown in the drawer. I fastened it with black lace, white ribbon and a pearl ended hatpin.

I have made a video showing how I made the altered book. I will post the video tomorrow.
