my sweet little book #2

My mini metal book inspired by nature was a finalist for cloth paper scissors magazine. I am crossing my fingers that it will be published. It measures 2x3 inches and is soldered with a plaster and resin bezel and flowers from my garden. I miss this book already-I had to send it in for consideration...........Oh the waiting!
I took a class from Stephanie Lee to learn how to make these type of books-highly recommend it.

The spine has a bit of twigs and wee little nest with an egg wrapped in wire.

Inside I used a mixed media paper and troweled on a bit of plaster then color washes to age it. My own dried and pressed flowers included. The edges were laid on the wet plaster ( old lace). I think I am hooked on these!
