Finished Collage Book

My mother's tribute book is finished. I told you last blog post that I took an online course from Nancy Maxwell James in the Artful Gathering Classroom. Nancy's website is and the art papers can be obtained from Paper Whimsy

First is the cover, then the open pages. (Apologies in advance for the photography - the colors harmonize better in "real life")

Mama and me!
Three generations:
Me, my mother, sister and grandmother.
The finished book bound with fine chain and charms.
Now I need to work on the box for it.
Love, Linda


  1. Hi Linda, you did a great job! You picked a beautiful picture for the cover. I want to make some kind of book with pictures and information on our family history. And I want to decorate the cover to look victorian with lace and things too.
    Have a nice day!
