Wine altered book

This was my December altered book swap assignment–Wine.

There were some really terrific pages already done but I’ve learned that I do like the gluebooks style of using magazine cutouts and I do like having a “message.”

So I used the consumerism theme from Xmas catalogs and made fun of the “stuff” that comes with enjoying wine.

The second spread was more of a techniques thing:
*for the right page: I masked words which could refer to wine (it was originally a cigar book) and then I painted over using poster paint. I also cut out some wine words and pasted those in.
*for the left page: I covered with tissue paper, pasted photos of wine bottles onto card stock and made a pocket as well as cut out tags to put into the pocket. I put ribbon through a couple of the tags.
