Horse altered book tip-in mingle

These are 4 1/2 x 6" altered book tip-ins that my online art group is doing. The challenge was to do something with a horse with the person's theme worked into it also.
This one is for Diann and her theme was a
romantic theme with red, cream and browns.
The quote says, "A horse is the projection of
people's dreams about themselves - strong,
powerful, beautiful - and it has the capacity
of giving us escape from our mundane exhistance." ~ Pam Brown

This one is for Char and her theme is beauty.
The quote says, "A lovely horse is always an
experience... It is an emotional experience
of the kind that is spoiled by words."
~ Beryl Markham

This one is for Connie and her theme is History.

The quote says, "Look back at our struggle
for freedom, Trace our present day's strength to it's sources and you'll find that
man's pathway to glory is strewn with the bones of the horse." ~ Author Unknown
The stamp says,"proclaim liberty throughout the land.

This one is an extra one that I did for our swap hostess, Barbara as a thank you gift. Her theme is Dreams and fantasy and I think she also has a Halloween book.

This is also an extra one that I did for Dee who was physically unable to join our swap. She loves to laugh and has an altered book called Trumpery which means showey but useless and she also has a cowgirl altered book I think.
I hope they all love their pages. All the images were from my Printmaster program. Some are cut out images and some are water colored over.
