My Altered Book Vintage Style!

My new altered book started out as a real old and useless item until I altered it into this beautiful vintage project.  To complete my transition, I chose Prima products and stamps from The Rubber Cafe both working beautifully together on both the cover and the inside of this old book. 
My projected is called, Book of Vintage, so the word Vintage from the Vintage Treasures set was a perfect fit. I also stamped part of a clock from the same set as Vintage is all about a time that passed.

On the inside I used the same clock and a script stamp all over the cut book page, and distressed with Tim Holtz Tea Die Distress Stain. I stamped with Truffle Inx and heat embossed with Copper embossing powder.

A little closer view of the inside.

My Scrap Happy glue  was just perfect to glue all trinkets, flower and small pieces to complete my  large embellishment clusters.
