CD Book pages
Recycled lace, sewing pattern paper, book images, electrical tape backing. CD used as a template.
These are 2 pages I made for an altered CD book.
Each month all of the players make one page to the theme of another player, just like in the Altered Book Round Robin's or Tip in's. It's a straight swap, I made one in Jen's theme (which was J) and she's made one in mine. In the end we'll end up with around 8 double sided pages each made by 8 different people. We alter CD's to make our own book covers. It's a good way to collect art and ofcourse save 2 CD's from the rubbish bin:)
J is for J Henri Fabre (1823-1915)
The first man to make detailed obsevations of animals in the wild. He spent 40 years watching bees and wasps in his garden in France and proved how complex there behaviour was. (Info from old children's encyclopedia.)
I included all that info on the tag inside the pocket. My son has this electrical tape that is 'grippy' as opposed to 'sticky' and the plastic backing from this tape was gifted to me by him (he know's the way to his mothers heart....) and I used it to collage the background, with the help of a little paint it took on a honey comb look which I was very pleased with!
J is for Jasmine.
A little more obvious this time! The old flower and fruit encyclopedia I picked up for 50 cents is certainly getting a lot of use!
