Rogue Faux Altered Book

I have a faux altered book, one of my favorite types of projects to make, using one of  my favorite Rogue Redhead Designs stamp sets, Relish Reading, to share as my last post as part of the Rogue Crew.

When you open the door, you find a girl sitting under a tree with a book on her lap intermittently reading and dreaming.  I have loved this particular image since the set was released because of a silly childhood memory.  You see, I've always been kind of an "indoor girl" and as a kid when my mom would find me lost in the pages of a book yet again, she would tell me that I needed to go outside and do something.  So I took my book outside and continued reading under a tree!

The girl's image inside the book is stamped on top of the text stamp from the set lightly stamped with Tea Dye DI and colored with colored pencils. 

Additional border stamp: Prima

As a Bookworm (I am sure I was born with a book in my hands!) this makes me swoon.
The most beautiful sense of nostalgia.
I cannot enthuse enough.

Hello Penny
Unlike you and your other two friends, I discovered books much later, I was a very energetic child, 'Highly Strung' was the term often used to describe me.
However I do appreciate the written word, and I also appreciate good conversation...
I tend to chatter.
Your image is just perfect, you could just sit down yourself and look at it and drift off to God knows where, but who cares it is brilliant Penny.
