Energy and persistence conquer all things. --Benjamin Franklin
Before I show you the latest progress on my AB, I want to thank everyone who left such lovely comments on Friday. They were much appreciated!
I was really getting annoyed with my inside cover. Remember I used a sheet of tyvek paper that I painted. Every time I opened the book, the pages stuck together and peeled away some more color. I found some paper decorated with a train theme & stuck it on top. It's better.
As usual, Elizabeth's tutorial was well written and easy to understand. The only hard part was trying to fit it into my theme: travel. Oh, I know, there is the whole "window to the world" idea, but I wanted something different and more personal. It took nearly the two weeks since the lesson was posted, but I finally came up with the perfect idea....I thought of a porthole on a cruise ship. If you have cruised, you know they are no longer those little round, semi-claustrophic, portholes, but rather more like a large square or rectangle. I wanted to illustrate on the left page things about the pampered life aboard ship--although we've never had a room this luxurious! I included pictures of 3 ships we have been on. Even though the card stock I used was of a piece of luggage, it reminded me of the walls of some cabins we've been in.
Thanks for stopping by to see my latest altered book page! My book still has a fair amount of pages left so I am confident that I will be able to finish out the course with this book. Only about 6 more classes left! I can't feel sad, though, because this book makes me so happy. I will just start another one when I am done!
