New direction!

I bought a box of book covers, someone had taken the time to strip out the pages and all that was left were the covers, old and a little worn, and maybe 20 in the box. I bought them for a song and they have been collecting dust (with some other items I had to have) like a spoon rack with 50 or 60 spoons. So I stared at it for quite some time and along with my knowledge from the Lipstick ranch classes, made this piece, I love it and hope you will too. So here she is: I call her "Sammy" the next is: " The Girl in the window"
These pieces can be bought on Etsy-seller: Tomorrow's Treasures

The top picture is my house ready for fall or Halloween or both. Welcome!!

These are beautiful! What a great idea to use the old worn book covers. I've never seen anything like this before and it's really inspiring. I love mixed media and all the interesting things that can be done with this great art form! Thanks for your blog of inspirations and encouragement!

These are absolutely beautiful Betty! What a find, a whole box full of book covers! Some of them are so beautiful, someone must have seen the beauty in the covers to have saved them like that!

I didn't know you were on Etsy, I hearted you!
