Arty Girlz "altered challenge" Altered Book

I have altered this old dictionary for a new Altered book thread set up by Flo (her blog is "are you flowin" see my blog list. I have created this altered book using an old school dictionary that was being thrown out at my sons school. I have covered it in various papers, sprayed tissue paper, corrugated cardboard, 7 gypsies tape, images stamped on material and a little dali inchie that I created recently. I have added the word "art" to the bottom of the page. As I know this book is going to get full I have added charms & paper beads on to some elastic as a closure.
