For a couple of the following Altered Book pages, this first one is for the MIX53 challenge, Layers.
These are all pages from an altered book I made a while back for my sister’s birthday. Since we were born and raised in Texas, I chose to start with the book “Texas” by James Michener. I used quite a bit of text from it, but also a ton of pictures from magazines, especially Texas Monthly, clip art and stamps from a whole bunch of companies. I started by removing some pages and gluing other pages together for stability, then used a variety of colors of acrylic paints to base coat the pages. Then I would use a variety of ink colors and stamped images to create the backgrounds. Then the collage work started with all of the images. This is just a few of the pages…the entire book is around 45-50 double pages with all manner of pockets, fold outs, telescoping images, tags and pull outs. Some tell the history of Texas, some are on individual cities and regions of Texas..some tell about personal family history & experiences, recipes, music & some are just for fun.
I love all the fun images on this page..the only thing that always bothered me is the misspelling of “y’all” on the left page. I cut this out for the size, went ahead and used it, but it still bothers me. I guess the typist just had her contractions confused, since as every Texan knows, y’all is “you all” and the apostrophe goes after the y. And just to be clear, “y’all” is singular, “all y’all” is plural, lol.
And this page is also for the Ways to Use It (WT464), Horses as well as the Mix53.
This is a group of pages (see the angle cuts on the right?) that have a bunch of recipes and pictures of Tex-Mex food and restaurants.
And here we have some Texas music! Is there anything better? I’ve been to the Kerrville Folk Festival and it was always fabulous! And just interesting to me, but one of my cousins lived down the street from one of the ZZ Top members (I won’t say which, lol) and Buddy Holly was a cousin of my dad’s (so I guess he was cousin too) and they were born on the same day, same year. How cool!
I made this for Lydia’s closing challenge in Splitcoast’s Dare to Get Dirty week. I just love vintage phones and that’s why these little phone images appealed to me. I’ve had the sentiment for a long time and I thought it went well w/ all the little telephones. On the left, I stamped the phones w/ different colors of Distress inks and added some of the little numbered dial buttons. The dials on the tiny phones on the right were colored in w/ markers and I used a water brush and scribbled markers to add some paint splatter to these two. For the chevron panel, I stamped it many times and quickly colored them in w/ markers. The 3 circles were die cut. I really wanted some frayed fabric ribbon and couldn’t find any the right color in my stash, so I dyed a piece of white bias tape w/ one of the Distress ink pads, dried (carefully) w/ my heat gun and used my distressing tool on the the edges. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a chance to play in the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges this week. Lots of fun, inspiration, chatter and PRIZES! This is the final challenge, but y’all still have until Aug 6th to upload your creations in the Dare to Get Dirty Forum on Splitcoast.
