Handcrafted book~Spring Melody

This one of a kind handcrafted book 5 1/2" x 9 " was created by me using the coptic stitch ,and is one of a kind.
The image on the cover is from my painting Spring Melody.
I altered the look of the window, which I quite like.
Two paper clay lady bugs are resting on two of the panes,
and a bird in flight on the top one. The marker part for holding your page in place has 3 big coral beads on twine at the end to carry you thru the vary last page with your treasured thoughts and secrets.
There's a mix of blank,lined, and tibetan paper.
On the inside of the front cover is a beautiful patterned batik material, and on back cover a glass mirror flower with hemp stem , adding a special touch to the book. These little round mirrors can be found on traditional east indian clothes, and are called 'shishas'. Look in the mirror,and see your beautiful smile;-)
Affirmations at random on front cover.
This book was made with love,
and is a work of art in book form.
