My first love: altered books

I’ve shared some of my photography here, so thought I’d go ahead and share a few pages from one of my altered books called Life 101.

This is the first spread of my Life 101 book, which I used to explore life, its meaning, and its various hues.
A pale pink background, signifying the hope of a new day, a circle punched out of the page with an image peeking out from behind the window, screened with gold thread.

Music is the Language of the Soul

This page combines a Planet M postcard insert and a quotation. Background created with sponge and string.

This page is a tribute to my favorite poet – Maya Angelou.

Tea stained background with sponged stamping in purple and grey, illustrating one of my favorite poems – Still I Rise by Maya Angelou. The images, which show capured slaves and slaves working in fields, were tea stained and distressed.

Friends forever
Ripped page pockets hold tea bags, postcards, etc.–ephemera that speaks of friendship. Text stamped along pocket reads Memories.
