Rescued Little Golden Book

This mini little golden book, was sad in the free giveaway pile at the library book sale.  Nobody was paying any attention to it, and as I walked by the children's cart, I heard it call my name...really, I did!

When altering used, old books, I usually do the covers last, but for some reason I jumped all over the front and back of this little gem right away without even looking inside.  So for now, here are the covers...
The front cover was a few layers of paper scraps lying around, some doodles, some paint, and a 3-D flutterby using 4 layers of text for the wings.

Back Cover
The back cover was done at the same time, just some paper scraps, some paint, doodles, and one paper doodle flower.

And for a sneak peak at the inside, here is one page...
playing with poppies
The balance of pages I have glued together to make them sturdier and then I will add more layers of paper, rubber stamps, etc, a pocket or two to hold tags, atc's, ticket stubs, and some blank spots for journaling. 

Next time you go to the library, look at their used book sales...they are my fave canvas for art play!
