Altered Book Part V (Still Lesson 6!)

On this cold and rainy day here in the UK I decided to get out my sunny Springtime magazine pictures and make a collage for my Altered Book. I just wanted to cover the words and have fun with this.  I
used quintessentially British pictures and inked the bare bits with Peeled Paint. Now that had cheered me up.

Its the colours that got me - love all the various greens, just like the real English countryside! I keep looking at your work BJ and like Cassidy feel more and more tempted to have a go myself. I think I should have a look around for a sewn spine book, just in case . . .

Got a laugh out of the quintessentially British pictures. I agree, because those "cottages" are simply too adorable to come from the States.

Very evocative of a warm spring day - I can almost smell the grass and feel the sun on my back...lovely!
