Altered Book Class Resumed

Altered Book
We resumed our altered book class on Saturday...our instructor wasn't able to teach it this past year, but we had our reunion this week.  So much going on on these pages....there was too much to do at the class, so I brought home lots of the pieces....and I changed the right page quite a bit.  For the class, the instructor had us work on an accordion book with tag pockets.  When I got home, I didn't like what I had put on the book pockets so I opted not to put the book in.  Instead, I created a large pocket down the right hand side and made pockets for the tags there...
 Here are the tags...they have designs on the reverse side as well.

 You can see on the right hand side, where the tags go into the pockets.

 These pages have lots of collage elements, metal attachments, the tags, the paper rosette, the pages on the right side are cut in increments and the edges cut in curves and zig zags. 
Saturday night I went to my monthly Wine & Paint class...haven't photographed that yet.  A day filled with art and creativity.
