the final book page



I finished all the pages for Marissa's unbound book - this is the last one here. I clean my paint brushes on sheets of translucent waxed sandwich paper, and this is a collage glueing together torn pieces. I tied the pages together into a bundle with vintage ribbon, wrapped it in white and pale pink tissue, and tucked it into this little leather suitcase I found at the thriftstore and has been the receptacle of all the pages from the start. (I covered the inside of the little suitcase with cheery vintage-looking wallpaper and it has a clean, fresh feeling). I topped the tissue-wrapped bundle with a love note, a small tied bundle of fragrant lavender, and sprinkled dried rose petals over the top. It looks beautiful, I'm pleased.
