A Creation From The Past

Hello my dear friends,

today I would like to share a creation of mine that I did a few years ago. I am a lover of primitives and of the old. I have many of them in my home and I have made many primitives in the past but I don't really do so anymore. I think you get to a stage where you are happy with what you have. Actually I am happy enough to even downsize and declutter my primitives and I also find I have changed my style a bit as well.

This is one of my past primitives creations.

It is a "Canadian Pledge and Anthem" book.

I found the pledge on the Internet one day by chance and had the idea to make this book.

I had stained the pages and then printed on them. The book is decorated with painted fabric maple leaves.

It is made from an old book that has been stiffened and the pages have been glued together to stay in place.

I don't display it anymore (downsizing and decluttering) but I am sure it will be used one day again.

Ever since I have found altered art I feel I have found something I have been looking for. I love altered art because it isn't anything specific you have to use or style you have to make ~ you just make and use what ever you like and that is fantastic!!

I hope you are all well and have had a good weekend.

Have a peaceful and creative day,

Karen B.

  3. I just saw your post. Where did you find the Pledge? Would you send me the link please.

    1. Hi Lyn,
      I wrote this almost 6 years ago and unfortunately can't remember where I found it. Sorry I can't be of more help.
