Welcome! Artfully Musing is a blog dedicated to sharing art and the techniques and products used. I'll be showcasing collage, altered and mixed media art as well as miniature. I hope you'll check back often and are inspired. Thanks for visiting! Laura

NOTICE: AlphaStamps has moved to a new website. Unfortunately, I was not aware the product links in my blog posts would not forward to the products on the new website. This has affected both the links in the posts and my Collage Sheet & Digital Image Set Catalogs. I ask for your patience while I work to fix the links. I’ll be fixing the newest posts first working back in time. Lastly, I’ll fix the catalogs. In the meantime, if you encounter broken links and need to finding something you can either use the name of the product to search the new AlphaStamps.net site or you can email me using the “Email Me” button at the top of the left column of the blog and I will do what I can to help.

Angel Miniature Metal Book

I designed this tiny metal four page book for Alpha Stamps.  I think this is the smallest book I’ve ever made.  You can see in the picture below that the book is slightly larger than a quarter.
The book is made up of a square metal washer on the front and back and two copper stamping blanks in the middle.  I used Metal Patinas (Verdigris, Jade and Antique Copper) to color the square washers.
The four pages are hinged together.  I attached the hinges using E6000 glue.
The textured bits around the edges of the pictures is melted embossing powder.
This is the back of the book.

Amazing!!! How you see to make something so detailed that is so small is a gift.

Joanne said...

Wow, I doubt my fingers could work on something so small, I also doubt I could even see it. Wonderful.

Love the little book. I have ordered the hinges and the square washers, but I am curious as to how you secured the pages. Are you ( I hope) going to do a tut on the lovely item?
