I Bid you Welcome


I Bid you Welcome, originally uploaded by sapphire252.

In the spirit of the season, I am posting some pages that I have started in a copy of Bram Stoker's novel DRACULA that I am altering. It is a work in progress, and these pages that I am posting are far from complete...
I found a copy of this book at a garage sale, and spent most of the summer searching other garage sales and flea markets for pieces of broken jewelery, buttons, and other things that lent themselves to a vampire theme...and I am still searching! This project may take a while, but that is part of the fun....

Hello! I saw your link on Violette's message board and wandered over...

I like this altered book very much... I am sure there are more out there, and I haven't done a lot of exploring for samples of people's work, but yours is the first altered book project I have come across that has a direct and consistent theme with the book -- and I love that. And you've done a beautiful job.
