Fairy Garden Mini Book with G45 paper

I love this little book it will be great to put grand-kids photo's in ... each page is a pocket that can hold 2 photo's and each outer pocket has little pocket stubs to put things in also ... right now it holds the Fairy postcards that can hold photo and journaling on the back ...

Graphic 45 Design Team 2012 Audition

Graphic 45 papers are the bomb and I love working with them, they have asked that we show them at least 6 projects that reflect our work so these are mine ... as you can tell not all projects were using G45 papers but that's ok they don't mind ... I am head over heels about Altered Books but I do love working with paper in many forms ....

Sample of an Altered Book that I taught as a 4 day retreat workshop ...

Hinged paper collage on canvas
Spackle texture background
Garden stake place holder
Vintage fold up frame
Stencil and color mist on silk
collage, my original paper design

This is for my 2 1/2 year old granddaughter so it doesn't have lots of the extra detail I like to add ... enjoy
