From My Vintage Books 📖 📚 Series

By Sharmini Jayawardena


To make the book, rip off the spine first. Then colour the front, back and spine in white and leave to dry. I used Acrylic paints 🎨.

Paste the printed cover on the front cover of the book. Let it dry. I also added a printed spine to this book.

Paint the pages right round in gold and dry.

Colour the spine randomly with gold paint.

Now, sand paper the front cover at random. And do the same with the back cover.

Cut out cloth shapes of stars ⭐️⭐️ with gold fabric and baubles with blue silk. Paint streamers, streaming down from the top of the back cover, downward to meet the pasted shapes. Leave to dry.

Place the Vintage Book so as to give an accent to a table or shelf.
