doilies and books

Awhile ago I had an idea to use old lace doilies on my book covers.  They are a little more difficult to find than i thought they would be, but alas i found a handful of some unique doilies.  Its hard to make the book not look like its supposed to be in your Grandma's house.  So here is my first attempt at using doilies: 

book size: 7.5" by 6.5"
about 60 blanks pages of sketchbook quality paper

my new stamp!  From now on i will stamp all my books signed "get carried away!"

 Some details

All those pictures I just posted about inspiration, well they helped me get this painting to its final stage.  This painting took on quite a transformation from to initial sketch to now.  Funny, because that is what this painting is all about.  It will be in a student show at the C Gallery this June.  Yay!
