Medieval Wedding Guest Book

I am making a Medieval Wedding Guestbook for a writer in California. She sent me the cover.
I cut, tore and tea stained all of the pages using 140lb. cold press watercolor paper. Very thick.
After assembling the pages, I then stamped them using medieval themed stamps and vintage ink stamp pads. I think it is looking very authentic. These are some of the velvet ribbons and tea stained laces that I will be embellishing the cards and tags with. SHe is having a fall wedding, so she wants rich colors.
These are some of the tea stained cards I made and will add to the guest book for guests to sign.

This is the book before the pages were stamped.

After stamping the pages. I just love creating these. I love old books, papers and embellishing just about anything. lol I will take pictures of the finished project in a week or so. Have fun creating!

  9. Hi Tammy! Oh my this is gorgeous. I wish I knew how to do that and bind books. I'd love a journal from those pages. My baby is moving like crazy right now - wow! Well I wanted to tell you about the mosaics you asked about. I use http://bighugelabs.com/flickr/mosaic.php and enter flick urls to make my mosaics. Sometimes they don't work if a photo is protected, but usually it does. I hope that you can get it working and I also hope you are having a nice weekend!

  10. It's lovely Tammy! I can't wait to see what you do with it!!!
