Mellow Yellow!

I have been a major Altered Book making machine lately! This will be my last one for a week or so till the next round kicks in! In the meantime, I am working on a beading project and a Mini Board Book of Gardening Quotes for my Mother-in-Laws birthday. I have many other projects that need doing as well. Now it seems that there is a lovely little stomach virus going around. SO far, my son and I have been able to avoid it but we shall see.... Keep your fingers crossed for us!

Anyway, enough chit-chat! On to the art work!! This book is a part of the 'True Colors Type" RR that I am currently running. I have been waiting to work on this book for months! I was emptying a bag of stone ground corn meal when the theme for this spread hit me!! The bag is bright yellow and red and we use the corn meal to make my husbands famous corn griddle cakes. So the spread had to include the recipe, of course!
This is the left hand spread with the corn meal package. The background for the whole spread was the collaged and paint scrapped with yellow and golds.
This is the right hand side of the spread. The seed packet contains the recipe for the griddle cakes.
The quote is form Anne Frank and can be read when the seed packet is flipped up.

This shot shows the tag that I made to hold the recipe!

I had a lot of fun with this layout. The colors are so happy and bright. The buttons and the dry cleaning tapes added the right amount of whimsey to this very happy spread. I hope that my friend Judy will be pleased!!

I will be posting my other projects as soon as they are completed. I hope to be done in the next day or two as my Mother-in-Laws birthday is going to be celebrated this Saturday!! I need to get cracking!!

Hi Elizabeth
Thanks for visiting my blog and for your very kind comments.
I love your altered books, you're obviously into colour like I am, in the words of Kaffe Fassett if in doubt add 20 more colours, and I usually do.

Elizabeth, your altered book color groups are great! Your daughter's project is super (Hope she is feeling better now)! Love your painted paper backgrounds too!
