I’m excited! I am off to do another altered book round robin, starting the end of this month. There are five women involved and they live across the U.S. from Louisiana to Oregon…..and I know the quality of work they do and it is so exciting to have them share that work with me.
The theme of my book is “nature”. I am using children’s board books for the base, you know the kind….each page is thick cardboard with a slick finish, very sturdy. I have glued a small book on top of a larger book, so the front cover looks like this…….
I removed half of the pages from the smaller book and covered it with hand made paper, a piece of birch bark, leaf, moss, cap of an acorn and window of mica. The cardboard and the wire wrapped sticks are behind the smaller book.
Inside the small book…….
On the left side of the next two pages is muslin that is stamped and drawn on with ink and on the right is more of my friend, Thea’s, wonderful handmade paper and my bird stamp with an envelope full of tags for the other’s participants to sign.
The stamps they sign…..look like this.
except, I’ve added a third page….the one on the right is a page from an old photo album. Two of the windows are filled with drawing from an old book, one is filled with window screen and one with mica that has a bee stamped on it.
I’ve had so much fun working on this I hope my four altered book friends will enjoy it, too. The others have posted some or all of their books on their blogs and I can tell you they are fabulous. I told you I’m excited.
Just for fun and because I have not linked to one of my favorite Linky parties for a while….join me at Boogieboard Cottage for Masterpiece Monday.
