I am taking Elizabeth's free Altered Book course and here is what I have done so far...
This is my inside cover for my altered book. It is entitled "Journey."
I am quite pleased with how my niche turned out, thanks to Elizabeth's excellent instructions about clips and gel medium to keep the pages together. I have used the pages of an old pocket atlas to cover this part.
What will I put in my niche? Well, although my altered book will be filled with pages of different countries I have travelled to, in the end, as St. Augustine said, "You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you." And so, in my niche I plan to put a compass to symbolize the True North, the constant that guides travelers. In my life, my True North is Jesus Christ and my niche will reflect something I have been thinking of ever since I started this book, "My life is a Journey to the heart of God."
Linking up to Inspire Me Monday.
