Altered Cloth Bound Books!

I've seen a few people alter old used books and thought it was a FABULOUS idea!!! You can get Cloth bound books at yard sales, consignment stores, or most second hand stores! I got mine at my local Youth Ranch for about .50 cents each!!! Can't beat that for a cheap project base!!!

This first one was simple but the my FAVORITE! All I did was paint the book white and distress with some Tim Holtz distress inks to give it an old grungy feel! I ADORE these resin wings from Melissa Frances (I could go broke buying these things) and a little abstract finding I picked up! I have a new obsession with thick wired ribbon too!!!

This one was a thin little book I thought would be great for a small journal. I've used one of my favorite texture techniques and boiled layers of paint and sprayed with glimmer mist! I painted some metal embellishments white and distressed with black ink!

I plan on doing so many more of these too!! What a great gift idea!!! I was thinking a set of three would be perfect for a little journal set. I plan on gluing pages together and painting them white and adding my own graphics and lines!!!

Baby Album

I made an album for a friend and it has caught on like wildfire! I now have several friends requesting that albums be made for certain occasions. This particular album was made for a teacher of my daughters who is due to have a grand baby in February. Names are not certain yet so that is why there is a lack of titles and the empty bookplate on the front.

For a larger more detailed picture click on the image.

Papers are from Graphic 45's Baby 2 Bride collection, I just LOVE these fabulous colors and knew instantly that these are the ones I wanted to use!!! The envelope on the last page will soon say keepsakes for all of those little baby memorabilia that you just cant bear to part with, but for now I am out of the right letters for it and will be getting more tomorrow :) Thank you so much for looking!!!
