Pink French-style decorative books

Yet another of my experiments with recreating versions of old French books. I saw some old pink French books on Pinterest, and liked the look. So I painted a few of my collection of reusable books (Goodwill, folks, 25 cents each) ballet pink, then found some covers of old French books and old French document stamps online and used the liquid gel medium transfer method to get them onto the books. Finally, I antiqued them. I liked the result (very textural) so much, I’m making one more pink one so I can bundle four with twine, and also have started some blue ones. When I get these all done, I’ll take more photos. Pretty simple to do, if you like the look!
