Vintage clothing Altered Book


I had talked previously about an altered art book round robin that I was part of. It started last year on the ebay vintage board with 13 people. The main theme was vintage clothing and we each had our own sub-theme. Mine was Vintage lingerie & Beachwear. This month I received my finished book back and I'm here to show it off. Each month the books were shipped to a different person in the group who decorated a layout in the book according to your theme. It got a little bumpy here and there during the project, one girl got the boot from the group for being late every month (we were suppose to ship our books on the 15th of every month) another gal had to leave for family reasons, and last month, one girl lost 2 of the books in her own house (glad my book wasn't lost) So the project ended 3 months early, but I was glad to get my book back, because I couldn't wait to see it. To the left above is the outside of the book which I covered with some old rayon tulle and a large beaded applique. Below are the layouts from each of the ladies who worked on my book. Click on the images for larger views. I'm missing a photo of one of the pages, because it came out with glares on it.
