Altered Book - Zetti Women Altered Book Covers

Altered Book - Zetti Women

"Zetti Women"
Altered Book Round Robin
I am in a Round Robin over at ATCards.com and my theme is "Zetti Women". I found clip art I love and added wings, a crown and silly hat, chipboard letters and beaded fringe for the cover. I drilled holes in the front and back covers to tie orange ribbon to each board so it can be tied closed without breaking the spine.
This promises to be a lot of fun!

Inside Front Cover
I used crayons, Primacolor markers and assorted clip art for this page with a lot of doodling.

Introduction Page
I used crayons on the background of the page, then attached a piece of vellum to fit with vellum tape. The tag is made with cardstock and I glued a print-out of my introduction onto the card and doodled around the edges, then tied a ribbon on top.

"Title Page"
I covered the page with random strokes of a gold stamp pad, then covered the tackiness with a glaze of acrylic medium and yellow ochre. Then I used a 3-d paint in red and wrote the name, followed by a doodling of faces in Prismacolor pens.

Page
I got this idea from Veronica Goff and changed it to suit my needs. I attached tags of assorted colors and vellum with tiny brads and hung them with string. Each artist will sign a tag with their name so I will remember who worked in my book.

You've inspired me. I haven't done a book in awhile and have wanted to start another round robin with my friends. I like the artist tag page idea.

Your altered books are a feast to look at. I've made my own journals but never have done an altered book. This just might inspire me to do so.
