All That Glitters [Handmade Book] part 3

Gold foil chocolate covers, the one with the writing and building is from a blogging friend in Russia, Masha, she has a lovely crazy quilt circle on her blog today. On top is a patch of metallic braids and threads. Each braid/thread was wrapped around a rectangular metal frame and when most of the spaces were filled I stitched over them with the sewing machine, then it was cut from the frame. [the frame was made from one of those old fashioned metal coat hangers] 

More of the puree metal, notice the different colours. Gold trim and recycled jewellery.

The silver page. Four milk bottle tops [probably vintage now!], cup cake wrapper, painted plastic shapes, braids, tassel, string beads, sequins, beads, ball chain, sequin waste, Indian embroidery decoration, silver fabric.

More puree metal, the centre was cut out and there is gold fabric underneath, stitched. Tattered braid, beads.

Puree metal, moon embroidery [not stitched by myself]

Woven puree metal, stitched in place.

  1. I'd call this a book of glitzy curiosities. I've enjoyed reading about the pieces that make up your pages. Very crafty of you!

  2. Oh! That woven metal! That's such a lovely texture!
    I love the sun and moon, too.

    1. I like the woven metal and the woven braids too. I think they are my favourite pages.

  3. What a lot of wonderfully rich embellishments! I especially like the ones with blue added for a bit of extra pizzazz.

    1. You're right about the blue so adding another colour is something I am considering when doing future colour themed books.
