I just finished up working on some altered book pages. These are for a fellow artisans altered book entititled "Are You Game?".
My first layout is all about Child's Play. I tried to include some of the simple games and activities we did as kids. From tic tac toe to hangman, from puzzles to card games. Even a chain made from paper clips. Remember those? If I had had gum wrappers... there would of been a chain made from those too.
In this layout, I just wanted to show some different card and "table" games. I cut a niche into the book on the right page, and inserted real dominoe tiles. Below that are two niches... one for a bingo card/marker, and one for some miniature wooden dice. The left page uses two HUGE, oversized playing cards.
This is my Monopoly layout. I lightly painted the pages with a silver glaze. The pages on the right were folded to size, with every other page being inked in black. If you hadn't figured it out, it is suppose to look like the bars of a jail cell.
I used chipboard, alpha tiles, and stamps (Purple Onion Designs) to spell out "Go To Jail". I added copies of vintage Community Chest and Chance cards between the cell bars. I inclued an image of the original Monopoly game diagram from 1935.
All of these pages were fun to do. I hope you enjoy them Carole.
