Love Eternal Altered Book -Pink Saturday

Happy First Pink Saturday of 2010! Thanks to Beverly over at How Sweet the Sound for continuing to keep us going on into the new year. I hope today's post finds you all having a great start to your 2010. Beverly asked that we post a project that we would like to complete in 2010. One big thing I would like to accomplish this year is to get some of my altered art projects scanned and posted. I have so many altered books, it will take a long time to get them all posted, but I'm gonna try!

Be sure to drop by Beverly's place and check out some other wonderful Pink Saturday posts.

I decided to scan some pages of one of my very first altered books and post them. These are from my altered book entitled Love Eternal. I am pretty nervous about putting this out there. I've been doing Altered books for about 5 years, but this is the first time I've posted anything publicly. I'm posting my "Pink Pages" today in honor of Pink Saturday. This book has 24 complete 2-page spreads, but I am only posting 9 here. Hope you like them.

Well, that's it for now. I'll post more later. Let me know what you think.

I love, love, love these altered book pages. I have thought about trying making one but never have. Maybe that should be one of my projects for this year. Yours are very inspiring.

Happy New Year and Happy Pink Saturday!

I love, love your altered book pages...I want to do more of the altered arts this year. It allows such free thinking.

FABULOUS! Well done you! You know I'm an altered art fan - you've done a great job. I especially like Da Vinci's Lady - drama, depth, great colour... You've been hiding your light under a drop cloth for far too long.

Don't stop now!

Hi Tricia,
I love your altered books! I especially like The Garden in the Square! You are very talented. I have not altered a book yet, but your post inspires me to try. Thank you so much for stopping by, and I am so honored by your comments. Happy Pink Saturday to you, and may you have a blessed and exciting New Year.

What a wonderful creative idea! Just love them. In a few months I hope to be better, when you come to Pickens which is about 30-40 miles from me. Maybe we could meet somewhere. If Doc lets me travel by then! I do hope so. So give me a shout before you come and lets get together! It cold here too, I sure not the kind of cold you have there. But still cold! lol
I going to list you under our Mississippi Magnolia Southern Belles as your from here. lol Then I can keep up with who is from Mississippi! lol

I agree with Kate-those pages are wonderful! I'd like to start an altered book too. I've always wanted to do one with my ancestors. Thanks for the inspiration!! Happy pink week!
