Altered book stack using Teresa Collins vintage findings

ok so here was my second challenge i gave to myself, yup to do a stacked book set.  I have wanted to do them for quite a while and I was inspired to give it a try by all the talented crafters out there doing them up as project.  They just look so gorgeous I had to try.  It was alot of work, but i am please with the way it came out for my first try.  It is a good way to learn how to do something and to realize easier ways if you ever want to do them again for a second time...I used regular hard cover books that I already had read instead of trying to make my own from cardboard.  It was so much easier.  I painted them in gesso first so the papers would adhere better to the book covers.  I wanted a vintage feel and i just purchased Vintage Findings papers by Teresa Collins, i love the colors and design of this paper.  It goes perfect in my living room on my expresso colored coffee table.  So i hope you enjoy my project and i thank you so much for dropping by. Hugs
