Altered Books

I spent some time this weekend altering old books!  Marion Smith put on a great class last Thursday on Ustream, watch it here= http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/13073025

I found books at a flea market in town.
I used plenty of great flowers and embellishments from Tim Holtz and the Recollections line.
In her class she painted her cover, I just distressed and Inked mine.
Her instructions leave you with Soooo many pages!

I used Glimmer Mist in Olive Vine on this flower.

I already started on a second book!

Absolutely beautiful. I watched Marion's Ustream too and was very inspired. I love how you kept your cover natural, as that seems more vintage and authentic to me, but Marion's books were beautiful too.
