I really enjoy Altering books and using them as Art Journals. I always thought it would be great to use an altered book as a guest sign in book for a wedding. So when my daughter became engaged I had the perfect opportunity to make one. For weeks I procrastinated and searched for ideas. Sometimes the hardest part of a project is taking the first step and just getting started. So finally after weeks of trying to come up with the perfect idea I just had to get started.
I found the perfect book at a used book store near me. the color, size, and title, In Our Image, worked well. For the cover I used scrapbook paper, piano music, ledger paper and old book pages. I used a photo of the bride and groom and framed it with buttons. On the inside of the cover and the back I attached some ribbon so the book could be tied shut.
I was happy how the book turned out. I wish I hadn't procrastinated making it, because I was finishing it the night before the wedding and just didn't have the time to do all the things I wanted.
I hope you enjoy.
