Peacock Altered Book

Peacock book coverThis one took a while of puttering at it before it was done. Even with a generous number of pages removed, it’s still a bit bulky once I added flaps and such. This one has a real peacock feather on the front, glitter, and a wooden piece that says Dream painted gold. There is lace on the spine, and it’s signed on the back. The glitter shouldn’t shed too badly, as I’ve added layers of clear spray over top (no guarantees, though!).

29 double sided pages inside have purples and greens, with more peacock feathers and pretty details. Some papers and tags have fold foil or purple foil. Lots of pockets and flaps add interest. Among the matching tags are a lilac envelope and a little booklet. I used a variety of papers in this project, both open stock and from different stacks. The book is about 5.5 x 8.5 ” with about a one inch spine.

This will be available on Etsy. I’m planning to video a flip through to show off all the pages and tags.

This book would make a great journal, album for an exotic theme, book of spells/grimoire, etc. I personally think it’s beautiful, as peacock feathers are one of my favourite things. Giving one up from my collection (not to mention all the papers) was really difficult! But the result is worth it, and I am happy when I flip through this book to admire the pages. I can imagine using it myself.
