Before Alteration

This is an old book titled "Visionaries" printed in 1908. I was drawn to the look and feel of this book. It had a lovely deep red cover with gold lettering. I love to work with old books that have character. I added a 'third eye' made of polymer clay and acrylic paint. I also added an antique braided metal bracelet to the cover. The eye is glued to the hard cover. The inside cover was also altered.
Please feel free, to leave a comment or follow my blog.....
