Fragile Papers

  I love incorporating old book pages into my art.  I was thrilled this fall to find a couple of old English and French dictionaries at a library book sale.
  I mounted the page onto cardstock for strength, and then used an embossing folder to create the flower pattern.  I added chipboard to the area that I was going to stamp prior to embossing, to leave a flat area.

The leaves and moth were stamped onto vellum, another fun and fragile paper.

Oh I love the gold embossing around the edge of the page...such an opulent effect!
