Sneak Peek

I bought this 45 album at Good Will about a year ago for $1. As soon as I saw it, I snapped it up, knowing it would be altered at some point. It is bound like a scrapbook album, with the metal post and screw. It's missing one, so if anyone out there knows where I can get one, PLEASE email me.
The covers are missing, so I had to make them. I used some flat canvases that I had. They've been sitting for a year too... Anyway, I had to figure out how to attach them to the album. First I used duct tape, which was awesome. But it wouldn't flex enough. So, I ended up sewing some seem binding to the backside of the canvas and the cardboard strip (left from the original cover). It gives it more bending room- let's just hope it stay intact.


I am still not telling the song I chose, but I will show you the cover. I turned Chris Cornell into the man on the moon.

I printed an image out and used it for inspiration. How'd I do?

Get your thinking caps on girls, this is going into the mail soon.....
hugs- Lee
