Rose Art from an Altered Hard Back Book

Hello everyone,
Today I am going to write about outside inspiration. This post though it has a project made from Helmar is not my personal original idea. I found this idea on Pinterest, the link was a general link to a photo blog (not to an exact post) I spent hours trying to find this original artist because I found their work so intriguing. Alas... nothing was found and my life and family demanded me to return from cyberspace.

This book page rose is called "altered book art" it is a simple form of the art and if you ever want to see very extremely detailed pieces just Google the quote above and look at the images. With all this said this has been a very popular piece at in my window display I design for a local book store.
It was all created with a little distressing ink, one hard back book, Helmar 450 Quick Dry and Liquid Scrap Dots.

Thank you all for reading and I hope you enjoyed this little post about this project I couldn't get out of my mind. Hats off to the person out there who thought of doing this with a book. You inspired me, whoever you are!
