My Beautiful Shabby Cottage Chic Altered Art Faerie Book

I absolutely adore the way this special altered art book turned out. I have worked on it for months finding just the right antique colorized photos to transform into my little faeries. I searched for antique laces, linens, and doilies to add just the right touches here and there to this charming One of a Kind heirloom quality book.
Whether you love, shabby chic, vintage photos & textiles, or adore the faerie realm as I will love this precious book. I will never again create one just like this one.
I have it in auction in my ebay store, and will soon be listing it for sale in my Etsy shop as well if it does not sell on ebay.
I found the most beautiful antique laces, chenilles, buttons and more to make this beauty a touch of both old and new. I used fabrics from paris Bebe & Rachel Ashwell's Simply Shabby Chic Line.
Each little faerie has something special and unique about her from her wings to the Fairy Dust and Sugar Glitter she is embellished with. I used lots of satin ribbon roses, and silk flowers to adorn this book throughout. It is truly a wonderful conversation piece and treasure that can be passed down for generations to come....
For a lot more detailed photos please visit my ebay store with the link to the right. These are just a few of the pages in this sweet book.There are 10 decorated pages in total.

Please let me know what you think. I am considering making more of these wonderful books with varying themes. I was also wondering if anyone would be interested in a blank book so they could fill it up with their own special momentos or altered art.
