"Bird in the Hand" - Part 3

Hello Dear Blog Readers!
I'm so excited that many of you are enjoying these photos of my art book, "Bird in the Hand"! I'm sure you'll be happy to see more of these book pages in today's post, so let's dive in!

Book Pages from Signature #2 - Continued...
On the right - a page torn from a vintage watercolor painting made by my grandmother...

The scrap of 'sheet music' is actually a scrap of decorative tissue paper; if you look closely, you can see the 'marbled' paint underneath...



A scrap from one of my vintage French paperback books and a dainty embellishment from a fellow student...


On the right: another page torn from a vintage watercolor painted by my grandmother. On the left...

Detail of left page - gold silk fabric and scrap of vintage lace over textured page...

 

This rubber stamping was made from a stamp from a fellow classmate - It's a great quote about Time...

Detail shot of paint on vintage watercolor paper - the texture of the vintage watercolor papers found among my grandmother's portfolio of paintings is so different from watercolor paper today. I really treasure the paper I found and use it for special book pages...


Another detail shot of paint on vintage watercolor paper...love the texture!!

Scrap from a vintage book of math tables collaged onto one of my painted pages...

I hope you enjoyed perusing these pages from my "Bird in the Hand" book! The last pages will be shared tomorrow, but there will be more artful book goodness to share with some new books I've made since the retreat, so be sure to stay tuned!!
