If you're paying attention, you might remember that I am involved with a group that is working on a vintage clothing themed Altered Book Round Robin. The theme for the book that I worked on this month was 'The Flapper Age 1920-30s' So the theme that I chose for my two page spread in the book was 'Flappers & Cars' since I love flappers and I love cars!
First image shows a view of the two page spread. The other two photos are closers views. Click images for closer views.
For the background, I glued down a piece of old black fabric that has a sheer woven design through it. The border is some fuschia velvet ribbon and black silk ribbon is around each photo. The pink feathered piece was off of a shreaded veil hat, and I added a few flowers, beads and rhinestones here and there.
The theme for next month's book is 'Fantastical Frocks' - I have no idea what I'll be doing for that yet. What would you consider a fantastical frock?
Here are a few shots of the garage/room addition to our house. A front view, then a side view. It's a garage with a large room popped up on the top.
Then a view from the back.
Bye for now, Carol
