Hello again! Back with my latest altered book in the 12-month worldwide round robin I joined in January. Getting much more confident about working in other people's books now and this one, entitled "Home" was right up my street LOL. My first spread was inspired by a very lovely old reference book I picked up at a collectables fair for just £1. Its called Home Lover's Encyclopedia published in 1933 and has some wonderful illustrations, one of which I used for the background.
My second spread in the book was a bit more complicated. I wanted to do a little folded house made from Tim Holtz Artful Dwellings die which worked brilliantly until I tried to close the book. Ooops - too thick, so I cut the house in half and divided it between the two pages and now it pulls out on both sides and I think it looks fine. See what you think.
Really enjoyed working on this book and its now on its way to Australia for the next participant. Its costing a lot to send each book (over £11) so I'm thinking of setting up a UK-only based altered book round robin next year so if anyone would like to play along, please let me know and hopefully we'll get enough people to make it work. Thanks so much for stopping by and looking at my work. Margie x
