Vintage Page Designs: Book Cover Bird Collage

March 11, 2012

Book Cover Bird Collage

Here's a little something I made last night - I seemed to get a second wind later on day after having been super tired and cranky all day!  It's a little bird collage on a vintage book cover.


The book cover base is layered with muslin and lots of vintage items - lace, a postcard, book page, bird card, seam binding and sheet music.  I adhered the muslin to the book cover with iron-on fusible webbing and the paper elements with gel medium. I used fabric glue to attach the lace and seam binding and some heavy gel medium for the lace flower.

I'm busy working on a new project for my Etsy store - some beautiful themed kits and these are some of the items you might in them!

I'm working on a fabric journal today.  Head on over to the Facebook page for a peek and to share what you're working on this weekend!

I'm entering it into the following challenges:

Craft Room Challenge
Mojo Monthly

Happy creating!

I get a wild stint at night too. I just love collaged pieces and birds are a favourite too. I love the dark background, layers of paper and lace - and the fabulous pop of colour from the two birds! Thanks so much for sharing with My Mojo Monthly!

A vintage delight. Wonderful elements brought together.
It is funny as my recent post also makes use of a book cover.

How pretty! I love the gorgeous flower on the front- looks like it is from a Vintage wedding dress.... The vintage image of the birds is great - love the ephemera you used too.
