An Altered Notebook

I will be giving an Altered Book dem- onstration at the Studio 1219 (The Blue Water Art Incubus) in Port Huron, Michigan September 13th and 14th. I'd like to have a variety of different types of Altered Books in various stages of completion. This is an old school loose leaf binder that I cut down by 2 inches and covered with various papers. I found some old leather and added a few snaps for a closure. It has also been filled with left over cardboard and page dividers for future collage and journaling pages. More will be added to the cover as it gets worked on, this is just the background starting point right now. The gear paper is a wax rubbing and resist that I wrote about on my blog June 6th for the GPP Street team Challenge, Crusade #21.
