My First Piece from Stephanie Lee's Book

Well here it is my first completed piece! I kept getting hung up on trying to "make it my own" and end up making nothing so I made the decision to work through the projects and if my muse decides to get off her duff and help me out then great - if not - at least I am learning some new techniques in the process! lol 

My end result was a little bigger and slightly different (I etched the metal) and didn't use sterling wire but for the most part rings very true to the example in the book.

I used an antique French book with illustration. The example used a brass screw to attach the mini book to the metal backing (in addition to gel medium). I think I will either use copper wire or waxed linen to sort of parcel tie the book.
