Altered Books

 Book Makeovers

Marvelous Monday to you!  Hope that you had a great weekend.  We had a marathon work day on Saturday and then on Sunday, my Mr. Prince Charming, had to go back to work, so that left me rambling around on my own.  I have two shows coming up back to back, in just a few weeks.  YIKES!   Saturday, we spent most of the time cleaning and getting project ready to work on. Dust was flying from the sander and as usual I ended up with as much paint on me as my projects.   So I have several larger pieces now ready to begin repurposing. 

Sunday I started working on a few of the books that I had torn off covers from and had them stained and ready to add the "charm".  I had found the perfect graphics from The Graphics Fairy that I wanted to use.  I printed them out and did a little bit of distressing and added to the cover before adding lace, flowers, tags, charms and torn tattered doilies.  I love the way they turned out.  They will be making their way to my website and booth space this week.

I will be linking up at Brag Monday with The Graphic Fairy.  Until next time!
Stay Charmed,
