Passport to Art: unpacked

Thank you for following along with my altered book through the month of July.

There were still some pages left inside my book when I got to the end of the daily prompts.

This is the inside of the back cover.

I glued the last 2 pages together and put gesso on the pages in the first photograph above.  I inked the pages with Distress Inks.   This paper was left over from the shaving cream technique.

I cut a piece of it to fit behind the circular opening and stuck it down.

I stuck the page with the aperture down on top and then inked and stencilled the page.  I added two quotes that I hadn't used during the month.

Once these pages were finished I need to add the cover before finally gluing down the very back page.  You can see how I did the cover on Passport to Art.

Come back tomorrow to see the completed book.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Thank you for sponsoring the class!!! I've planned out the last of my pages. If I have any extra, I'm just gluing them together. LOL!
    It'll be a few weeks before I'm done, but I"ll be posting layouts every few days until the book is finished.

  2. My feelings exactly! You've done such a wonderful job with this, and put a lot of work into it. That shows a lot of love and generosity. I have truly enjoyed doing all that I have so far, and printing out all of the pages. I will be working on this for awhile longer. Before this class, I'd never done an altered book. Thank you so much, Bernice!! <3
