1800's Altered Dictionary

Hello friends!  I've been playing with Amazing Mold Putty again..LOL!  I do love the idea that I can mold and cast whatever my heart desires!  This is an 1800's dictionary that I spotted at an Antique Shoppe!
The pages in the book have become very brittle and tear easily so I thought if I'd glue several together, it would make it a little more sturdy.  I guess if I were over a hundred years old, I'd be brittle, too!  The sweet vintage images are Crafty Secrets and I made a mold of a mini door plate and knob. Amazing Mold Putty really is amazing!! Added lots of Glimmer Glam and Glimmer Mist.  I've added some Basically Bare and Prima shapes.
The fancy swirls has been molded and cast with Amazing Mold Putty.

This is beautiful! I have just discovered that I can get inexpensive books at the thrift store to alter. I am making a purse with one, but I love this project and might have to scrap lift parts!
