An altered book with quotes

Dear readers,

some weeks back I did discover a real treasure:

As you can see this book is in a very bad shape. So bad that it became beautiful I did think.  Do you agree?

Anyway, it inspired me to make it into another kind of book.

There are lots of quotes in it, some very nostalgic albumpictures, some paintings, some pockets.

And I used lots of ephemera on the front- and backcover.


At thee frontcover I used  paper made from ananasplants coloured with   some embossingpowders designed by Seth Apter for Emerald Creek. Most ephemera is from Tim Holtz (Ranger). I esp adore the very small key. Live your dream comes from ‘Just Jolande”.


The backcover is more flat and much darker. The 5 is also a gift from “just jolande”. The umbrella and rings are from heavy cardstock, maybe from dutch doobadoo, I am not sure. The colours are perfect pearls from Ranger.

I’ll show you some  pictures of the inside pages ( there are 26 pages).

Hope you like it.

Thanks for visiting 🙂

And comments are very welcome 🙂
