Altered Books

I tried a new form of cut book. I perused a library book about altered books, and it sparked some new ideas for me to try. I designed an "illuminated" letter L, and embroidered it on a page from the book. I cut an oval shape out of the book cover to frame the letter. My graduate and I both like it.

After transferring the pattern to the page, I pre-punched holes with a thumb tack before embroidering on the page. I don't remember what I saw in the book that sparked this idea, but I like it.
