Compendium of Curiosities Week 2: Fragment Basics

Well, it's week 2 of the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge over at Studio L3. I had my pages from our PAO Sister Page swap waiting for a book to put them in so I chose to use this week's challenge to get caught up on that. I used some Basic Grey paper to cover my book board covers and then made a collage for the cover with some Tim Holtz paper and the fragments adhered to various collage papers. Also, found a CS watercolor stamped dragonfly to put on the corner. Ideology corners finish off the corners of the covers. And a bunch of fibers and a homemade bead decorate the rings.
