Compendium of Curosities Vol. 3 Challenge Week No. 13


This is my project for week 13 of the CC3 Challenge sponsored by Inspiration Emporium that follows page 35 from Tim's book - altering a worn cover.  My project is done in a vintage gluebook style using random scraps of paper, photos and repurposed book text phrases from my stash.  The challenge was to alter the cover, but I was having so much fun creating little collages that I made inside pages too. I find the process of creating little vignette collages really fun and relaxing, and I just can't stop because I find little scraps that I want to use up.  All the inner pages are done using a piece of chipboard that I covered with vintage ledger paper to use as the base. 

Here are pictures of the pages so you can experience flipping through the book : - ) Hope you enjoy them!

OH wow! Your Worn Covers book is awesome! The cover is very vintage and such a great "tease" for what is in store when someone opens the cover. Each page is beautifully done. I love all of the vintage photos, the backgrounds and the sentiments you have attached to each one. Thanks for sharing your art with all of us at CC3C. <3 Candy
