Found some old books at Antique Store and decided to Alter them.
This is the result!
Here's a view of the stamped cover
My inspiration for the altered books came from the current issue of Green Craft Magazine.
I removed the book covers and spines. The spine on old books shows the stitching that holds the book together. I adhered some lace to each spine and then created a stamped cover and applied to the top of each book; stacked the books, tied tulle around the stack to hold it together and embellished using a floral spray and a few loose flowers and some leaves from the floral spray. This sits on my living room coffee table next to my altered bottle.
The Altered Eclectics challenges are always anything goes as long as it's altered art, mixed media, repurposed, upcycled, recycled art; no ATCs, no cards.
We hope you will share your altered projects with us this month. You can find the Altered Eclectics Challenge HERE.
