Take a Word: Books

When Marie suggested an altered book for this challenge, I created a "digital altered book."  It's a combination of images from two books on London--a Baedeker travel guide, and a book called "Londontown." The resulting book is superimposed on an image of an old London map. Since my maiden name is London, I'm drawn to digital images and ephemera relating to the city :).

Three Muses: Some Like it Hot!




Just as I thought, three more of my "alphabet ladies" (see previous post) begged to star in this digital collage. They had to change into "hot" outfits first.

Collage Obsession: "A is for..."


This week's CO challenge is to create a collage featuring the letter A. I happened to have created an altered book a while ago with a "Written Word" theme.  Somehow a bunch of vintage images of ladies in my stash wanted to masquerade as the letters of the alphabet in the book. I had to listen...they were insistent. The two-page spread below is the "A" page in my altered book. (The other ladies are now clamoring to have their pages posted here...I can only hope that there are more alphabet-themed Collage Obsession challenges in the future.)
