Altered Book

I joined an Altered Book round robin. I haven't done one in a couple years and had been in the mood. This one came up and I jumped at the opportunity.

I had to pick a theme so I decided on Floriography: the language of flowers. It is believed (and used a lot during Victorian times) that each flower had a meaning. So a bouquet would reflect those meanings.

I have done 2 spreads in my book and it is now ready to mail.

First is White Roses. The meaning is "Charm and Innocence".

I coated the page first with gesso and then stamped roses with white paint. You really have look close and in person to see the stamping but I know it is there. :-)

Second is Begonias. The definition is "A Fanciful Nature".
