Flip Thru: Altered Hardback #two

I created a short flip-through video to show you the pages in this altered hardback novel. If you can't see the embedded video, go directly to the video on Vimeo. In late 2008 when I started this book, I didn't have any clue how much fun I would have and how much I would love the book as it evolved as I tried new art materials, new ideas. You never really know what art project will be a turning point in your world! This 5x8" hardback book measures 8x10" when the pages are open. I found it in a discount book store for $1 and it was all text, with a solid spine and decently thick pages. Certainly workable. Since the pages were narrow, I worked each pair of pages together.

P.S. It's my first flip-through video!

Here are some of the pages with a little background info: Glaze Pens + Faded Green, Live in the Now, Elemental Grid and Dream Collage.

Don't forget to get started on the September Creative Experiments!

Thanks for sharing your flip-through! You altered book is so luscious and yummy, I could never chose a favorite because all of them are so rich and colorful! Congrats on finishing a book! It looks like a moleskine on the cover, but I guess its just because its black... :-)

Awesome, awesome, awesome!!!! LOVED the video, Tammy. Your book is gorgeous and chock full of inspiration. And the music has me dancing in my jammies!!! Hugs, Terri xoxo

Hanna, I added some words to my post to make it a little clearer (yes it looks like a moleskine). It is actually a hardback I found at a discount store for $1 back in 2008 and have been altering it off an on ever since then! I'm finally "calling" it, meaning it's done... it's done! Otherwise this could go on forever:).

Terri, I am so happy that you liked the music. It seriously takes me longer to find the music than to create the original video! There's a lot of copyright-free music on the web allowed for free use, but a lot of it is not so good!

Very nice. I love that not all the pages have images or journaling on them. In my mind, that's what a real artist's journal should be... not all "finished" pages.
