Spine Tingling Books

I did some more book demolition over the weekend.
There is nothing more exciting than tearing the covers off of an old decaying book to see what is hidden underneath.
And I love the paper sandwich created from restacking the resulting mess!
All I need is a bird's nest and a stuffed crow and I've got a Victorian naturalist's vigniette!
It might be hard to find a stuffed bird, but I'm sure I could find a nest.
It's a windy day and all kinds of things are falling out of the maple tree in our backyard.

Carpe Diem!

What crazy things are you creating today?

One of these days I am going to come across a pile of old books that are affordable and have a beautiful stack like this! I'm so jealous!!!

Today, I have made a little book out of cardboard and an old calendar. Having fun, but cardboard is not liking any adhesive so I'm sewing and stapling! Hugs
