Altered Book Day 5..

Well, I finally got the Ole Altered Book out, it has been along time, thanks to AEDM it has inspired me to work on it.  I have many things that I love and one is paper, quotes and words.  I do alot of cutting out of magazines, books and junk mail.  I picked these two pictures because they speak of alot of who I am.  The one on the left is of a woman of style and looks like she could take on the city.  Some of that reflects me, I love fashion (there are many things I have wanted to be and one is a fashion writer), I could live in the City (have before), but the girl on the right is ME a true cowgirl at heart.  The girl that goes and hops on here horse, cleans out a barn ( I can shovel some mean POOP, just let me tell you..heehee), has many animals, has her friends over for a bonfire to roast marshmallows and takes her family and friends on long trail rides.  Don't get me wrong I love the city to the core and have seen so many things.  But at the end of the day I am a cowgirl.  But you can bet I will be wearing my fashionable boots, a funky belt, some fun pretty baubles and my horse will have the fanciest saddle in the barn.

This is the cover of my book..I took an old book I found in a cute little used book store owned by a very funny old man. I used old wallpaper from wallpaper books, then painted and stamped the front...the little girl on the front was there originally, So I kept her there because I really liked the illustration.
My mom arrived late last night from California, we have a fun filled day ahead..YEAH!!


  1. Personally I much prefer the girl on the right. Like you I love using words and quotes. The cover of your book is wonderful.


  2. Forgot to say - I've been a link to you on my blog.

  3. so cool! i love messing around with collage and old books!

  4. What fun! I think the idea of the city girl in you vs. the cowgirl in you is great! It looks like you're really enjoying this :)
