As Altered Eclectics is a mixed media, recycled challenge blog I decided to try making something for the festive season, this would work well for Thanksgiving or Christmas.
This book was rescued from a recycle bin so I have not trashed a perfectly good book, it was going to be pulped, now it has a new lease of life.
Half the book has been cut away and removed, retaining the hard cover for stability. Each page is folded over to form the front of the turkey.
The tail is some old music manuscript, again rescued from pulping, rolled in to cones and glued to form a fan shape.
The head is traced from a free digi and then mounted on card and tucked into the body. The surrounding hard cover could be decorated with fir cones, leaves, holly, or anything else you wish to use to add a little colour.
Altered Eclectics is an anything goes challenge, anything BUT a card or ATC, so come over and show us your projects.
I would like to enter Bernard the turkey in the following challenges:
