Bye the Sea altered Book, part 2

Dear scrappers,

I saw this challenge:

Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge 9: Fold it

And decided I have the perfect project for it, my ongoing altered book project with friend, Ann, By the Sea:

I used many folding techniques for making the pocket pages/ dividers and even though Ann bought new papers for this altered book project, the distress inks, paints, etc are from my stash...

Preparing the first pocket:

Details of inside cover:

The pocket finally made:

We used the Graphic 45 number stickers for the pocket pages:

Filler pages. Day 1 before altering:

We decided to keep most of the beautiful graphics in this page and include one of the large photos across both pages

We decided to skip some pages I between and attached them together...

Second pocket:

We weren't in love with the diver, thus we covered it and used a burlap mat for the main picture.

We have enjoy every slow (mostly because of our cramped schedules) step of this ongoing project and plan to incorporate more fun techniques for the remaining pages... To follow in further posts ;-)

I hope you enjoy it,
