I made two sets of altered art books in a rainbow theme.



Each book is bound pamphlet style.

I used lots of fun stuff in these books. There are eight pages in each including scrap booking paper, watercolor paper, and repurposed materials like vintage newspaper and a Monet poster.

The purple books are especially fun with some rumpled and scribbled canvas paper, acetate, scrap watercolor paper, and scrapbook papers. Here are some pictures of the pages below.




Thanks for looking!

Thanks everyone!
Samantha, go for it! I was surprised how few purple pages there were in the packs but that just made way for the other materials. I like that the scrap book paper is printed on one side to allow more room for creativity on the blank sides.

SilverMoon, the bottles are fun! The gold print is glittery too.

That's a great use of that cardstock, really respecting that particular stack.  I've got a couple of those stacks and so very reluctant to touch them, to cover up too much detail!!!  This is awesome.
