This is for the MIX challenge and also Thursday's WT Challenge (horses).
I made this book for my sister for her birthday. Since we were born & raised in Texas, I chose to start with the book “Texas” by James Michener. I used quite a bit of text from it, but also a ton of pictures from magazines, especially Texas Monthly, clip art & stamps from a whole bunch of companies. I started by removing some pages & gluing other pages together for stability, then used a variety of colors of acrylic paints to base coat the pages. I used a variety of ink colors & stamped images to create the backgrounds. Then the collage work started with all of the images. This is just one double page…the entire book is around 45-50 double pages with all manner of pockets, fold outs, telescoping images, tags & pull outs. Some tell the history of Texas, some are on individual cities & regions of Texas..some tell about personal family history & experiences, recipes, music & some are just for fun.
Thanks so much for looking! I did this a while back & I admit, it took quite a while to finish. It's just been posted on my blog w/ 8 or 9 more pages if you'd like to take a look: The Write Stuff
