Altered book

I attempted to build a doll house from a book in a vintage style. 
I cut out doorways and staircase from the pages of the book and this is how it looks. Them with lots of layering, texture pastes, stenciling through a lace, sketching, fuzzy cutting and embellishing I build a scene of any day in a house. This book depicts a page out of any ladies life…look through some more pictures to see what I mean.  
The basic page cutting such that the book can be folded shut

I wanted to use a metallic lace (which you will see as an outline of the walls) I have been hoarding for a while. It’s also perfect to add a vintage look.   For creating a vintage look to the walls I applied modeling paste though a lace and inked it orange.

See the walls texture, created by stenciling through a lace with modeling paste

Note the stairways

 For the cover of the book refer this link to see how I did it.

Most of the miniatures I have made from card board. The candle stand and the dressing table were both made in a vintage style to add as accessories. There is also a little doll there , a rightful resident of this doll house!


Hope you liked my story book!!
