Altered Book Tip In Swap

How about some artwork for a change???? :)
Earlier this year I joined my first "Altered Book" swap. This is a "tip-in" swap. Each participant in the group has a theme. We make 2 - 5x7 pages for them (using thier theme) to put into their own altered books at home. They can add the pages by gluing, sewing, stapling, using eyelets, or ....???? This has been a great way to get my feet wet in Altered Books. It has been fabulous fun and I have really enjoyed all of the themes I had to work with. I have 5 of the 6 done.... I'll post number 6 later! (Like, after I DO it! LOL!! :)

Here are the themes and what I came up with:

Lyrics are printed on a transparency. Background papers are dyed paper towels sewn onto cardstock.

Bad Girls:
Mesh veggie bag used on the background. Quotes printed on transparency.

Vintage Girl Scouts:
Distressed cardstock background. Right page overlaid w/ transparency attached w/ brads.

Blue is Beautiful:
Used one of my Faux Soldered UTEE pieces on the left page.
Pirates of the Caribbean:
My first sucessful Gel Medium transfer (Skull on the upper left). Background painted and sponges w/ acrylic paints.
By the way, MY theme is: Fanta-sea. (Fantasy Sea Creatures and Water Gods and Goddesses) I have received some WONDERFUL pages for my book! :)


  1. WOW!They are all awesome. But I am always in AWE of your talent. Thanks for posting these. Very inspiring.

  2. Hi Susan, your pages are awesome. Love your choice of a theme. Altered books are a lot of fun, once you get over the fear of doing them...LOL Thanks for sharing.
