This was a travel themed altered book & I chose to do Prince Edward Island.
For one reason I love Anne of Green Gables,
and second this is where my godmother is originally from.
I started with painting over the book with gold Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint.
Then I took a couple of pages out of the book behind my spread and then glued in a piece of cardboard from a box so that I could cut a niche out (and not have to cut through 20 pages). I added a map of P.E.I., and stamped some Tim Holtz stamps, glued down a doily, a flower and then the crest of P.E.I.
My little book was made of pictures I found of P.E.I. on the internet, and a picture of a book cover that was appropriately titled "Little book of Prince Edward Island". I bound the pictures with my bind it all.
Underneath the book I added another map of P.E.I and added ribbon to each side of the niche, then added a buckle to one side of the ribbon to make a "belt" to hold the book in the niche.
This is another spread I am extremely thrilled with, and was the first niche I ever did.
