Altered Book by purplefeltpen Altered Book by purplefeltpen
This is an ooooold old book that I "rescued" from my high school library right before I graduated... they were going to throw it out! It was covered in a really ugly dust jacket that revealed a KICKASS cover when removed. I knew I had to do something with this book. It took a lot of willpower to make the first "alteration", because it's been drilled into my head my entire life to respect books... once I got started, though, I couldn't stop!

I used scrapbooking materials (paper, hole punches, adhesives, etc.etc.) and decorated the pages. Some of them look plain at the first glance (I know you're thinking I didn't do ANYTHING for the fleur-du-lis page... first person to find the secret there gets a gold star =P )

There's another two sets of pages that I didn't put up in here. The first I left out because it was god-awful and I am ashamed of it. The second I left out because it's my favourite and I can't get the colours to come out right in photos or with my scanner, and I want to wait to post it until I feel like it's being adequately represented!

This is pretty much an ongoing project for me to play with whenever I feel like it... it's so theraputic to put together!
