Paper bag Art album - Nature by nighty Paper bag Art album - Nature by nighty
While ^kuschelirmel was visiting me, she checked out some of my traditional work I haven't shared on DA before and encouraged me to do so. So this is one of my altered art - paper bag books.

The book measures 5" x 5 1/2" and is created out of 3 paperbags, so there are 12 pages overall.
There are lots of details and in the hidden pockets are pullout pages with extra images . Also included are a variety of tags and bookmarks which can be removed and are usable.

I tried to use many organic pieces like dried flowers, leaves and wood to give it beautiful natural feel.

I think I have never spent this much time on a paper book before and it ended up to be my favourite altered book so far.

Full view for details :D


The images used in the book are purchased stock images and are therefore free for use in artprojects.

Beautiful! As well as the whole idea behind it, as the way you translated it into something touchable. I'd love to have a book like that, just to browse through it everyday.

I love art books, and this is no exception. I have a difficult time collaging things together to make them work visually, so I am really impressed. Love the feeling it evokes. Wish I could hold it in my hands and carefully analyze it up close. =)
