Altered Book

The Lady and the Garden was my choice of theme for the altered book at yahoo mixedmedia uk. We started the book last year I already have some photos on how it was altered it took some time to arrive back but the book is now finished.
I had to resew the first three sections back in the book as they had come loose and eventually fallen completely out. I had to think about this first but sewed them back with a coptic stitch onto calico and then into the book but with a touch of paint and new front pages everything fell into place very well. One of the reasons they came out was the way I had divided the pages not making sure there was an overlap that didn't show the stitching between each decorated page.
The book now looks very good and there is some really good art in it. I am going to show this in the autumn at a local hobby exhibition. I have now lent the book to a friend who is going to show it to her local group to encourage them to make a book.
