Handmade Vintage Wallpaper Book
A large handmade book I recently created from vintage wallpapers
vintage French magazine scraps
archival matte board and gummed tape
It’s strong tough and a little rough
Over 60 pages of vintage wallpapers, watercolor papers, paint splotches and tabs in between
Size 23cm x 16cm.
My beautiful large round tags are made from thick sturdy cardboard, aged in a dye bath then, baked in the oven and inked, to make even more rustic. Decorated with 1950’s Christmas rubber stamps. All topped off with strands of aged jute string to tie or hang
Each of my round tags feature a different design. Reindeer, angels, koalas, platypus, holly, retro family, sleigh, Christmas bells, snowdrops and vintage greetings.
Add a touch of old world Christmas to your tree, gifts, art books, journals, mixed media work etc.
Genivieve packed the dressing table drawer with thin tissue and very gently put the delicate antique scrap laces from her grandmothers wedding gown in, then reached for the chocolate box.
As the wife of a fine chocolatier in France, she knows, too much will falter her figure but she can’t resist the luxurious indulgence of chocolat.

“Bonne année” was created using a French perfume box with scrap pieces of label from a champagne bottle I shared with my family in Paris 2009
For the base I rescued some gold butter paper about to be thrown out in the rubbish
