Sneak Preview...

Hello my Friends,
Thought I would give you a glimpse of my altered book. This thing has intensified.... I've done, re-done, re-thought, but it seems to be coming together. There is a lot of intricate hand work involved in this monstrosity, but I think when it's finished it will be something that I will be very satisfied with.
I will share what is done to the outside cover so far and my plan for the large niche'. There are other surprises to come on the inside; even though its a front cover and one niche". (I decided to only have one niche' and do something with the front inside cover for some "surprise"). I re-did the bead work and removed the beading while working on the inside of the book. I reattached a couple of them for the photos. Enjoy and remember that this is my own creation...please do not copy my ideas.
(Notice the heavy glitter on the background of the niche' piece...sometimes it's frosty on

This will entail "The Spirit of Halloween" when I'm finished!!!

    Very inspiration, as I am having my drawing class/commercial arts make accordion books. They have to be themed, and calligraphy must be included. I was planning on doing Halloween theme my self.
