Altered Books - Frida y Mexico

 Way back in 2005 I started doing altered books,

 I loved the fact that all the instructions about
 them said you couldn't do them wrong!

The second one I did was entitled Frida y Mexico.

 I had a blast putting it together, using everything I 
could find in my growing stash of art supplies,

 including Victorian scrap from my material
grandmother's scrapbook(center top on right hand page),

 a napkin from Venice (right hand page),

and crepe paper cutout flags (left hand page).
More pages of Frida on Wednesday.


  1. Wow! Love this! Thanx for the visit and cool goodies yesterday.

  2. Sharon - It was great to see you my friend! So glad you could stop by.

  3. How extraordinary and wonderful that you have actual family ephemera - Victorian scrap - to use in your projects. One thing Frida demands is color and more color. Oh darn. xo

  4. Marylinn - My maternal grandmother collect Victorian scrap back in the 1890's when she was a child. And I was the lucky one who inherited it - years before I began using it in my art work.
