Wall Art ~ Altered LP Album

My friend Lori, who owns the Etsy store ItsLorraine, gave me an altered record years ago as a gift. It is beautiful, with a dragonfly theme and embellishments galore! She continues to alter and sell her work in a smaller fashion- using CDs to alter. Can you imagine shipping a record album? 

This is one that I altered for a hostess gift at NAQGCON about five years ago.

A 12"x12" sheet of scrapbook paper fits perfectly over the vinyl LP. I used a spray adhesive. I printed the text on vellum pieces and embellished with a few quilled pieces and the large dragonfly. The round cork acts as a message board and I gave her a purple polymer clay hand quilling tool like I was selling at the conference. The crop-a-dile had just come out so it was easy to punch the holes and add large eyelets. You cannot see, but there is a pen hanging at the bottom from a ball chain.

Thanks for looking! And thanks to Lori for introducing this project to me. The hostess was very pleased as it is one of a kind. I'm thinking about making another one, more updated.

Have a great weekend!

I love this idea and what you did with it! All one has to do is look around their homes for items not being used and alter them. And I do have some record LP's that I could alter!

Thanks everyone for your comments! Ann, that is such a good idea, I'm thinking coordinating metallic papers.
