Winged with paradox


I will be participating in a Altered Book Round Robin. This is the the first spread which I have done in it. I am still working on the cover (which I have added a leather and snap closure to) and the sign in page. I found this old book on birds which I thought would make for a nice theme. The book however, was not in the greatest shape, so I decided to gut the book and rebind it with Bristol board pages. While the book makes it's rounds it will be in a bag including all the pages I removed and those can be used for collage fodder. The book had mostly black and white photos of birds which gives it a rather vintage feel. I'm still not very happy with my scanners scanning capabilities. I might try to photograph it tomorrow.

I think it looks fabulous, Ingrid! And I'm excited to see the progress of the books in the Round Robin, too. So much goodness in each book...how fun! Oh, and I adore the Oscar Wilde quote, too.
Peace & Love,
