Since I've been watching both Boardwalk Empire and House of Eliot in recent weeks, I was drawn to the 1920's -- the era of jazz, flappers, The Great Gatsby, dancing the Charleston, and Prohibition. I imagine it as being a fictional girl's journal, with bits of her mementos pressed between the pages. Hope you enjoy!
(I don't want to overload browsers, so I'll post a few pictures each day from my book.)
This is the front cover. Her headpiece was the end corner of a vintage lace table runner, and when I held it up I imagined a face beneath it - so I painted one. The Cotton Club was a
very popular club in NYC during this era.
This is the drawstring bag the journal will go into.
