Copper Book: Part Two

Most of the pages in the book are black scrapbook paper with a very soft finish.  I made the book to a specific square size so I could use two envelopes I had, one black and one metallic copper.  This gave me several places to put items that for whatever reason didn't fit on any of the regular pages.
The black envelope with postage stamps, bits of stamped handmade paper, and a mulberry paper with copper colored seed heads in it.

Vintage photo, vintage ticket stubs, vintage postcard, wax seal, postage stamps.

Feathers, postage stamps, top of wine bottle foil, and rubber stamping.  The crows are stamped on a little booklet with vintage drawings of roosters.

Blank greeting card embellished with metallic rubber stamping and metalic pen.  The inside is covered with bits of Japanese newsprint. 

Vintage photo in metallic photo corners on the copper envelope with small tassel attached.

Vintage page, small envelope and tags, yarn.

Some of the items in pockets: Handcolored ATC, rubber stamping, collage materials.  In the upper right is a small booklet shown at the top of the photo below.

Postage stamps, rubber stamping, vintage postcard of Paris flower seller.

My daughter is back to being a dishwater blond again, but for now, she has the Copper Book to commemorate her redheaded years.
