so, i guess this is an ephemera altered book, lol. funny, fun, and unexpected, you never know where this art it will take you.
it's still relatively flat
some pockets using ancient pages and vintage game cards
these images are cut from an 1881 children's storybook. i must say here that i could never cut/alter any old book unless it was beyond repair. sometimes the cover is in good shape and the pages are torn, folded dirty, or visa verse.
some pages to journal on with vintage ledger papers
it's flat, it good, yea! so far, lol!
these books take a long time to complete, there are a lot of steps with gluing and planning and, once in a while, unexpected disasters as well. lots of fun, please try at least 1 altered book! this one could hold family ephemera and copies of family photos of long past relatives. couldn't you see all those interesting and precious items tucked the pockets? all in one place, and easy to share, i love these books! anyway, going well so far, glue is drying and it is fathers day, we must have a bar-b-que!
enjoy and celebrate with your family! i'll be back home burning the midnight oil, if you are a "night-owl", think of me! -rebecca
