Here is my ideas of "I Hear A Symphony" using paper napkins. the background on both is napkins. 1st ATC - I stamped with music, added a little info about the London Philharmonic Orchestra and 3 Saxophones cut from fabric, added a few music notes in gold peel offs.
2nd ATC stamped music on a strip of white napkin, placed diagonally then a little info about Beethoven, printed a pic of Beethoven, layered it on white card, cut it out to look like a postage stamp placed a music motif in the corner, used the same gold peel off notes and clef to finish the design.

Back cover - Printed a "tea" design on to white card, added my details to the centre panel, carefully cut out and glued to the back.
I punched holes in each page 1/2 inch from top and bottom, bought some gold elastic, tied securely to make a band, poked the elastic through the holes back to front and placed the ends of a wooden skewer through the loops, made a neat and simple binding. Sent this my first altered book to Tracey M from Liverpool here in the UK.
page 5 - background is textured wallpaper, randomly sponge painted with shades of pink. The cherry tree branch was painted brown with silver & gold highlights the flowers are stamped on the same wall paper, cut out and shaded in varying shades of pink, I added a little bling gold to the centres, and white 3D paint to the topmost flowers.
page6 - background is sponge painted using pinks and white, the fans are stamped onto card, coloured in with gold, white and pink. Added a pink ribbon, then stamped Chinese characters on base and ribbon, finished the design with 3 white fabric butterflies.
page 7 - back ground is a mottled mixture of green, gold & black paint, with gold edging using a Woodcraft Marker Pen. The panda (inspired by an embroidery design) was painted onto thin canvas, edged again with the gold pen, stamped an asian symbol in the corner & added 3 small buttons to finish the page.
page 8 - back ground is black fabric with chinese writing, I painted the bamboo with green paint, edged the stems and leaves with gold glitter 3D paint, added a few sequins for a little extra bling.
