Paris Inspired Accordion Fold Book

The overall dimensions of this book are 5 ¼” x 6” and it’s 1 ¾” thick.  The cover is loaded with layers of paper, stamping, rub-ons, paper images, beaded trim, ribbon and other dimensional embellishments.  The inspiration for the book came from the image of the woman.  She is from a vintage perfume ad.
I used a stencil to add the peach color to the fabric spine.

Whoa This is stunning. Literally took my breath away. The Peacock on the cover, is that a stamp, an image, a charm. Inquiring minds NEED to know. LOL...
