It's time for another photo inspiration challenge at Scrappily Ever After. Melanie picked out great picture of a bunch of open books.
I have been waiting to use this type of technique. I bought a couple old books from the second hand store for scrapbooking a few years ago. I think I had to get over the fact that tearing up a book was OK. The rules are to NEVER write in a book or tear it apart and I guess that was ingrained in me. I had planned to make an altered book but somehow I've never done it. I'm not really the altered type I guess.
One of the books that I bought was a small dictionary. I've wanted to tear out a page and attach it to a card or lay out. It would have really been best to scan it and use the original page but keep the scan in case I wanted to make multiples or use it somewhere else. That thought just occurred
to me so maybe next time.
I tore out the page with school on it and used Mod Podge to seal it down. I attached the buttons and ribbon with a bit of glue and there it is. Next time I would use a bit less Mod Podge since the card warped a little but nothing that a little bending wouldn't straighten out. The Mod Podge did tint the card some but not very noticeable once dry.
Thanks for checking in today. I hope you will stop by for some Christmas cards that I did last month and didn't get posted.
