The start is to cover page with a music sheet and damp brush a coat of gesso over it, when it is dry. stamp an image and emboss it with embossing powder and heat to set. Distress with inks and add a piece of upholstery fabric, fringed and a piece of tea dyed cheesecloth , an aged small doily. Sew around your picture and then glue all fabrics down securely. Next I will add the final touches to this page.Here it is, it is finished with some words, old jewelry, page from an antique book and a button. Another page tomorrow.Hope you can put this method to some use for your own altered vintage book.
