Altered Book >>>> Deconstructed and Reconstructed

Altered Book >>>> Deconstructed and Reconstructed - student project

I think I bit off too much by selecting a Reader's Digest book.  Too many pages!!! And an unforgiving spine.  It wouldn't open very flat at all.  But over time I found my groove. I decided that I had to glue my pages to two removed pages..  That worked well because my book is overstuffed somehow even without replacing every page.  

This project became quite relaxing after I got the hang of it.   I will use the book to journal 2020 - words/phrases I learned, things that happened, things that got canceled.  I have already put in half a dozen bumper sticker items I received in the mail.  So much of 2020 turned political - these stickers are reflective of the time in the USA.

I am not good at precision - so my pages don't all fit the same way.  I'm okay with that.  I won't throw it away if I cut it incorrectly.....it just becomes something else :-)Altered Book >>>> Deconstructed and Reconstructed - image 1 - student projectAltered Book >>>> Deconstructed and Reconstructed - image 2 - student projectAltered Book >>>> Deconstructed and Reconstructed - image 3 - student project
