Altered book by Titbelsoeur

Ca va tout le monde ?
This year, I participated in a Circle Journal swap with French friends. My topic was the Universal Exhibition of 1900 in Paris. To store the pages I have received, I altered an old book.
The first half of the book is made with the various pages, and the second half hosts a niche I glued some things into, such as buttons, cogs and so on...

A page :

the covers :

the niche filled with little treasures :

The Gibson Girls I love so much are stamped here and there, clearly or shadowy. No acrylic paint in this book, only Distress inks such as Tumbled Glass, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain.

Would you be interested in viewing the awesome pages I received from my friends, just pop up to my blog @

I hope you like my altered book
thanks for stopping by, 
I am looking forward to reading your comments ! 
A très bientôt !!
