I am inspired by the Day of the Dead art from Mexico. I did this "altared" book last October and it continues to be a favorite. The book is a thrift store find, the crochet is also rescued from a local thrift store. The tiny birds are from a sand dollar that I found cracked so I opened it to let the little birdies out. I hand sculped and painted the sculls and offerings of food and flowers. The pictures are from a 1800's dictionary set and I liberated them so that they can me honored for all time.
