I have been sorting out some of my stuff with the hopes of organizing a bit. (Daunting job!) Thought I would share a double page spread in an altered book I did about five or six years ago when I was teaching an altered book class:
The background consists of many torn papers- old sheet music, gift wrap, patterned tissue paper. Vintage images cut into tags on the right page, with a twine bow, the letter M sticker and some buttons for embellishments. A piece of mica attached with tiny brads covers the image on the left page. Also added a small cameo. Rubber stamping here and there on both pages. It looks very vintage-y to me.
