Cabinet of Curiosity - Cover

Ta-Da! It's finished! Here is the album cover for my artwork from The Cabinet of Curiosity Challenge. The album, which I found at Target, is perfect for the collages I created on 9" x 12" watercolor paper. I liked the color because it reminded me of a journal an explorer might use. And the fabric cover was perfect because I could embellish it with ribbon and 7-Gypsies gaffer tape that I already had. I looked through my stash of word embellishments and when I came across this word pebble, I knew my search was over.
I tossed around several ideas for the opening in the cover. At first I was going to create an entirely new piece for it. But then I started playing around with the images of the different collages and I decided I would use portions from each of the various challenge prompts and create a montage of them all. . .sort of a collage of the collages. I like the idea of giving the viewer a sneak-peek of what's inside. Later I may ink the edges of the album to age it a bit. I'll just have to let it sit and evolve over the next few days like I usually do.

Did I tell you how much I like your Cab of C. Sometimes I have trouble leaving comments. Then I don't remember if I did or didn't.
So I just love your cover and that you finished. Oh yes and your shopping trip. You scored.
