Day 17 AEDM: Petal to the Metal

I've had a huge box full of silk flower petals for over 2 years (or has it been three years?) It's time to do something with them. Today I figured out what that is...a book cover! I still need to glue in the book block, so this isn't technically finished, but I wanted to show the progress so far...

I ripped the flowers off their stems, pulled the petals apart, then stuck a sequin and a mini brad in the center of each one. The mini brad was then stabbed through the pleather cover fabric and fastened.

I'm excited to continue working on this...once it's done it will be available for purchase under the "For Sale" tab in the top right corner.
