Altered Book

My friend, Kari, is hosting a new altered book RR on my Yahoo group. The theme is children's classics and is entitled Literatura Infantil. My book is Anne of Green Gables and this is my sign in page:



The paper I wanted to use wasn't big enough for the spread so I improvised with paint (not a brilliant colour match it has to be said!) and pencil! The players are all snuggled in with their Avonlea classmates in the school register!

This is the first spread in the book:



I wanted to do something simple to start the book off with, using my current favourite colour scheme of beige and black. I'm now wondering if it's a tad boring but I can always add to the spread when my book comes home later this year.

Also, can't resist sharing the dust jacket picture:



How lovely is that picture? I think I'll incorporate it into the covers when the book comes home.

Coolio! Love the sign in, LOL and yes, the dust jacket is lovely. I have a picture of Pollyanna inside my book and I am keeping that page untouched.

I am so happy this round robin is beginning!

Me too, loving the sign-in page that is. I also really like the spread you have done and think that it is perfect as it is - the simplicity says it all.

Mmm, that sign in page is such a great idea, am looking forward to working in this one. As you say, I think that we're in for several treats in this RR.
