After searching online for Altered Books, I found a similar piece of art using slide mounts. I love how this turned out. Each "canvas" is so small...it can really be a challenge and other times it's easy as pie! I have made these nine slides with various papers and even Christmas wrapping paper. The black corrugated cardboard was inked and heat-embossed with gold, mounted on torn, inked and black embossed paper and all of that mounted on foam core. I covered both sides of the foam core with chipboard and painted it red. There's some black cording finishing off the edges. It looks super-fantastic!!! What therapy. My hubby says to sell it...but I am not sure...I like it too much!
