Letters Home--a closer look

Did you see the Letters Home book in the Spring 2014 issue of Altered Arts Magazine?  It was the first time I've made this type of altered book;  it was a little different for me.

It's a book with a niche full up of simply bound tiny books, and as the piece is entitled "Letters Home," all of the enclosed booklets contain images and proverbs or sayings pertaining to home.  Here is a closer look at some of the booklets:

Each of the enclosed booklets has tags/charms/found items attached at the outer spine.

Been working on my lettering--can you tell??
Happy Thursday, everyone!


  1. Yes, I can tell Trisha! Beautiful project and lettering!! Love this idea!

  2. Oh I love it! Great lettering too!

  3. Your lettering is wonderful. Love the letters from home idea!

  4. I am new to the site. Looking forward to see more posts. I recently started exploring mixed media art and journaling. The letters are pretty.
    My mixed media learning and journal pages will be posted on

  5. A beautiful project. I love books and your mini-books are really cool! And your lettering is wonderful.

  6. Thanks, Robin--I've been working on better lettering, it just never looks quite right to me . . .
