altered book round robin

Time to mail out another book to the next gal on the chain.  This month I had Renee's book and her theme is Numbers.  Her book is an old ledger book with pages 3.5 x 8.5 inches.  I love this size!  Here is the double page spread I created:

I used paper from Tim Holtz' vintage shabby pad, on which I stamped several number stamps (there are quite a few in my stamp collection).  Also a "paid" stamp with the no. 7 on it.  Added a rusty metal 3 to the right page and some computer generated phrases to the left page.  Darkened all the edges with a black ink pad.

Usually I quit at a DPS; but this time I decided to add something to the backs of both pages.  Here is the back of the left page:

Just collaged several bits and pieces of ephemera that have numbers on them - a boarding ticket, a library date due slip,  playing card number stickers and a couple of collage images from ARTchix Studio.

Here is the back of the right side:

A times table that is from an old flash card set, a bingo sticker, the number 5 stenciled over the card, a watch stick pin, and another set of numbers I found on a collage sheet.  Some rusty hinge distress ink around the edge.  I fastened the times table to the page with a round paper clip without glueing it down.

Sure hope Renee will enjoy these pages as much as I enjoyed creating them.
