I've posted the photos for the altered books I have been doing.  They are all on different topics.  The one on Ancient Egypt is my "mummy book".  I wrapped an old textbook with the strips from my sons old mummy Halloween costumes and then added the Egyptian images.  There is also a shrine that I did to the Knock shrine in Ireland.  I visited there in 1989 and decided to use the holy water bottle I bought there in a shrine.  The last book is an annotated copy of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.  I'm not totally pleased with it.  The annotations are in my handwriting and are hard to read.  You could also annotate in the book forever.  I've posted a lot of photos at my site.  I hope you can see them all.  This is my first Craftster posting and I hoped I haven't messed it up.

Thank you for looking.

aznfg,
Thanks for sending me the link on the shrine of Knock!

This one has such bold use of color....excellent for a niche like this.

I like how your other pages had such distinct colorations, too.

The shrine of the knock is awesome! I'd love to see your other ones. I wanted to make a hide-a-way book I think I got about 15 pages cut out before I gave up, lol.

Thank you for looking.

In the Knock book, I was trying to use the colors at the Knock shrine.  The gray wall, green grass and blue, Marian blue sky.  I think my drawing and painting skills are weak, so I just used color instead.

I also must add that if I had known I would have to make such a deep niche I probably would not have started.  But this book is a really early effort for me and I just kept cutting. 

I'm also going to try and post working links now.  But you may try going back from the one posted to other albums for the other books.
