February already and it’s time for the second “Second on the 2nd” thanks to Elizabeth at Altered Book Lover for the chance to look back and repost something you would like to share again…

here is a look back to February 2012 and an altered heart book that I created…

the post was titledpages of my heart”

  1. >>do you ever slow down on a project just before completing it?<< haha, you should ask the contrary… – that really happens often. but mostly earlier, not on the very last steps…
    patty, your Revival is gorgeous, so glad you showed it again!! the shape of the book is so awesome and you altered it with yummy pieces! i couldn´t pick a favorite… yes, elizabeth´s challenge is fab!

  3. What a fantastic book! So glad you have brought it back out. Sometimes I do slow down on projects, usually because I get distracted by something new and just have to try it out right away.

  4. This heart book was a perfect choice for a second look in February. Each page is more beautiful than the next. It is really fun to look back and re-inspire ourselves or perhaps someone else.

  5. I was always impressed by this book. It is SO different from the two I have that have a single heart when opened. You have truly made me want to get my ABs out again and speed up, rather than slow down. I so enjoyed these pages. They are truly inspirational. Those last two look like they are ready for whenever the time is right to finish them. I was especially impressed by the black background.

    Thanks for sharing this second look on the 2nd with us this month. I’m sorry I deleted the post from last month.

  13. Patty – this is absolutely stunning. I love every single page, but will admit I am partial to the blue one for Sausolito – gorgeous color, pattern and image. What a great memory keeper this little book is!

  14. I ❤ your heart shaped book. Esp the "seasoned" page. Maybe its the red in combination with the heart that strikes me as perfect…or the math. I really do like math.

  21. It’s beautiful Patty! Each and every page.
    A romantic cover of special papers, lace, a cameo and more enticing the holder to look inside!
    Your blue page is my favourite – exquisite detail – the little fairy’s dress edged in dragonfly….. Oh my!
    Art journalling takes on a whole new meaning in your hands dear Patty.
    I’m inspired.
    love

  23. How lovely to see this for the first time. How many treasures must be hidden in Old Blogland.
    It must have been fun to make this book, I can see it in the book.
    I’ve examined each page carefully and I am choosing as my favourite the “Seasoned” page closely followed (or maybe preceded?) by the one above.
    This book is utterly delightful.
    And the quote by Mark Chagall at the end is extremely interesting.

  25. To hold such a book in the hands and gaze at the gorgeousness of the cover with all the tactile quality you injected into it and know that there are still all the pages of artwork to peruse, oh my what a treat.
    Very beautiful.
