ALTERED BOOK

Wednesday Stamper has for its theme this week "openings". My entry is this altered book that when opened reveals a niche cut into the inside, the niche has a lid which is made from some of the book pages glued together and the lid opens to reveal a photo inside.




The photo inside the niche is my grandmother, though you can't see it very well here she is wearing a pearl necklace (which I still have) and so I hung a string of pearl beads over the lid to the niche. The other bits and pieces are just to decorate the piece!!
