Memoirs: Maternal Grandparents

These are the first few pages of my altered book journal which talks about my maternal grandmother.

On the left is a brief description of my grandmother’s family and on the right is a photo of my grandparents. Love this photo of them. This page spread is quite chunky – I used modeling paste to create the texture.

On this page spread, I did a collage about what I remember most about my grandmother. Whenever I would visit her, she was always in the kitchen cooking. I loved the food that she prepared. I also wrote a few things about her – mostly describing her when my mom was growing up. My aunt supplied the information.

It was interesting to see that while I was doing these pages, Mica and Rinoa were very curious to know who they (my grandparents) were as they saw the photos. They also couldn’t wait to see what else I put in the journal – they very much want to know more about my family history. I love it!

Thank you for sharing your lovely work. And thanks for the tutorial a few posts below regarding altered books- very helpful indeed. I think I might apply some of those techniques to my Remains of the Day journal. Those scrappy journal pages are really addictive to sew together but I think I need to start actually using the journals!
