Altered Paper Bag Book "Flowers"

Altered paper bag book “Flowers” was one of my first books and I decided to publish it now. It has13 spreads and 12 pockets. The paper bags are glued one to another and make very steady pages. I used acrylic paints, crackles, vellum and many flower quotations. All the images are from napkins. I have to paint the pages in a clear color for the images to show. I used a glue called "termolina", that gives strength to the paper. It is a Brazilian stuff. The cover is decoupage and closes tightly with a clasp. I embellish it with different golden laces, golden ribbon and a cold porcelain flower cast. Book size is 6 ½inches x 6 ½ inches x 1 inch.
