Altered Book - Ann McLachlan

Hi everyone... I've been recycling old books again ;-)

I visited my local Hospice shop and purchased some old books for 50c each,

I didn't dare tell the lovely ladies in the shop what I was going to do to them, they would have been horrified I'm sure!

This time I chose a smaller book and hollowed out both sides of the book so that i could add embellishments to both sides.

Altered Book- Ann McLachlan

I also used some of the fantastic Sizzix Alterations dies... Caged Bird, Hanging Sign and Hardware Findings along with the Film Strip die and The Ticket Stub die.... I just love these dies and they will cut through just about anything, paper, chipboard, felt, transparencies, box board (corrugated), the list goes on.

The large bloom is one of the new Roosevelt-Anna flowers from Prima....Isn't it just gorgeous!

The book, bird and ticket stubs have all been inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink....I just adore these inks!

The book is on display at Scottie Crafts if you happen to be in shopping and would like a closer look.

Bye all,

:-)  Ann


  1. another stunning piece of altered artwork Ann ... it truly is stunning!

  2. I have to admit that I'm very tempted by this, Ann. Off-the-page display thingees are not something I would usually do, but this is sooooo yummy. Hmmm. Perhaps!

  3. yes I saw it, it is gorgeous
