Vintage clothing themed Altered Book

Hi!
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

That's your garage?! Here in the UK that's about the size of an exclusive executive home!!

Can't wait to see what you do with the room upstairs.

i love that era -- the 20's and 30's -- just watched "kinsey" last noc and an irish movie "falling for a dancer" last week or so -- amazing how "advanced" and yet how "simple" it still was -- with horses and carts, ragmen, icemen and the like mingling with the auto, not everyone having electricity yet, the still somewhat "wild, open" west -- and so on...sigh...
