I could read them fine. Maybe he's just not "arty" enough.  Cheesy

amaryllisroze -- I can absolutely read the slide mounts.

Goatgoddess
-- Your pages in this book are some of my favorites from this entire project.

Stifflersmom -- I'm glad you included a shot of the fold-out of Katxena's little book, because I thought that was just fabulous!

rackycoo -- Those bathing beauties are great. Are the tags tucked in behind the postcard?

Katxena
-- Thanks for the compliments on the woven pages. I came up with that idea immediately, but then I didn't know what else to do. I was inspired by the quote "It's not trash -- it's ephemera!" on the first page of this book (Oh yeah -- where's the pic of the first page, anyway? I really liked it!) and I went with... well, lots of trash ephemera. A kind of "bird's nest" thing. Or... something.

Here's my favorite "trash to treasure" story about that page... when I went to make that little envelope, I was going to tear out a page from the thrift-store dictionary I was using. A receipt fell out as I picked it up. I think it's from... 1982, maybe? (Stifflersmom, you might still be able to read the date). I thought that was so funny: "Here's a piece of trash! I'll just use it to make that little envelope!"

It's great to see one book posted -- can't wait to see the rest!

LOVE that cover!

katxena - got to see these pages up close - the texture and that fold out book - too cool!

kaesea - didn't see these - how very cool! just love how there is so much to look at!

amaryllisroze - love those pages - so elegant and can read the slide mounts just fine - what a wonderful idea!

rackycoo - love those pages - how fun! love how you put the stamps and images together.

Those tags are so nice - so fun to see them in a group!

Not to be all "Look at me! Look at me!" but... I posted some slightly better photos of the pages I made for Stifflersmom's book on my blog here.

Hrmmm... I don't mean to say that Stiffly's photos weren't good, so no offense is intended. I also had a hard time when I tried to scan these pages -- too much junk ephemera piled on, I think.  Grin
