New technique!

So, long story short, I found myself here after I tore apart an old book and started playing with the different things that can be done with them rather than being thrown out. 

Yestrday I started playing with the pages, lamenating them with layers of book pages and gel matte medium.  After the pages were dried I started decorating the top with various paints, pearlescent powder, inks and dyes.  Here is the final result:  A cuff bracelet made from book pages!  The final product has almost the feel of a stiff, thin leather.  I am excited to play around more with this technique to see what else I can create!  So much fun.
