Two roses have been made out of the pages of "The Secret Garden". They stand on a painted wooden base under a glass dome. The butterfly on the base is also made from "The Secret Garden". Dome stands approximately 9" high by 6" wide. Glass dome is removable.

I'm not sure this can be called a book alteration, but since I used left over pages from a previous alteration, I'm going to go with it.

An angel with her trumpet flies across the pages of this alteration. Made with sheet music, she has curled hair, fanned wings and sleeve and a ruffled skirt. The book altered is a Tabernacle Hymnal from the early 1900's.

I do have additional hymnals. If you are interested in a piece similar to this one, or have an idea for an alteration commission featuring a different figure, please note me.
