What a Bargain
What a find I had yesterday, I took some crockery I couldn't use in my mosaics to the local Op shop (charity shop) near work, I'm always rummaging through their jewellery and book section, and look what I found on one of the shelves. The book was published in 1911, it even had someone's name written inside with the date 1916 added, it's in very good condition considering it's age and the book is full of coloured plates of wildflowers, all for the grand total of three dollars.
I thought it was interesting that as I took photos of it on one of my benches, the colours emulated the piece of paper that I had been decorating.
I couldn't finish without adding some real colour to my post. This is another page from my altered book, this time I've used a stencil I made as well as lots of layers.
