It all started innocently enough...I bought this great old photo album at a flea market.
Then one day, while looking through my collection of old photos I noticed how many photos I had of men, women and children wearing hats. Great hats, hats of the period with feathers and ruffles and brims out to here hats...that's what I'll do....make an altered book featuring some wonderful hats!
So, I started making pages for my book......
This is a page....that is under construction...a lot could change!
In spite of having a great book and some fantastic photos, I've had trouble getting "fired up" about this book, until today!
That's when Melissa posted a blog about the great ATCs she has been making. Check them out here at her blog "Red Tape" . She does wonderful things with cabinet cards. While your reading her blog, I recommend you click on her Flicker page and check out the whole body of work.
This is the great thing about blogging and belonging to on-line art groups....artists, like Melissa, share something on their blog that can truly inspired another blogger....clear across the country...and get her excited about trying some new ideas. Thanks, Mellissa. I hope one day soon, I will be ready to share my completed book with you and my other readers.
This Wednesday, the 21st, I will be joining Seth Apter at The Altered Page for the fun collaboration he is hosting called Paper Stacks. I don't think you're going to want to miss it!
Thanks for stopping by and I always appreciate your comments.
