Beaded Spine Journal

As usual, click on an image to enlarge it.

There are 5 signatures of 4 pages each, so....40 pages. I have only worked on three pages so far. The stamped image on the first page bled through to the backside...which worked out fine for me. I just went with it. 

These pages are made to look old by tea dying and baking. The cover is a cereal box covered with a scrunched up paper bag. The colored flower is cut from a soda can using theTim Holtz Tattered Florals die. The closure is a button wrapped with crunched up binding tape dyed with Distress Stain. The colored beads are are handmade (by me).
