It started life as a hardback book that I'd bought from a charity shop. I decided how many pages I wanted to create and then I split the books pages into even sections to match this number, I also removed some pages so that the finished book wouldn't be too bulky.
This is the front cover, I gessoed it first and then painted with brown acrylic. The medallion squares made from craft foam, which I've heated and textured with some stamps and then aged with some rub'n'buff and added a brad to the center. I've then added fleur de lis ribbon and a Zetter perfect closure with a padlock clasp.
On The Wings of A Butterfly
by Christine McClimans Your friendship is special
Like the flowers that bloom,
Or when a butterfly emerges
From within its cocoon...
You remind me of that butterfly,
Loving and free,
Bright and colorful,
For the world to see...
We will share sunshine and rainbows;
Sometimes, the rain and the snow;
We'll stand together through it,
While the cold winds blow...
When the time is right,
We won't stop to ask "Why?"
Our friendship will take flight
On the wings of a butterfly...
And here is another of the double page spreads that I collaged to represent her family tree.
I hope you've enjoyed this little peek!
Thanks for reading
