Altered Book

I just finished a class at from Sarah Whitmire    We did all sorts of things to the book, and I keep learning more about the products needed to do it. She's a good teacher and it was a fun class.

Here's the back. I used Vintage Ribbon on it that has a history. 4 of us were going to San Diego to the Fashion Show at Bazaar del Mundo when we stopped at an Antique Mall near the Los Angeles airport-not exactly on the way, but we wanted to go to the ribbon store there. The ribbons were on bolts of 40 yards, so we each bought one.

At the motel that night, we unwound all 4 and divided them, so we all got 10 yards of the two greens and two blues. This was not easy as the motel row was so little that the two double beds filled it and everything had to be done on them-no floor space. It was a crazy weekend and good memory.
