Altering books can be a great adventure. There are no rules, no rights and wrongs. There are infinite ways to use all your favorite art supplies and skills to alter an old book. I hope you visit often. Please feel free to use any ideas and tricks you pick up here. I do this for fun, not for profit! One of my best tricks is - if you mess up a page, tear it out! Start a new page. That's "my way".
I recently added the mail art component here. What could be easier or more fun than making a post card and sending it off to a friend? Or to a stranger?
Do you ever decide to clear out a lot of old photos in your camera? Well, this morning I did just that.
And I found photos of artwork I did in the last month but had not posted.
One day I took a print of a photo of my great grandfather's farm in Wisconsin and a box of Portfolio oil pastels and some watercolor paper to the senior center for our Monday morning art time. I had not used them for a long time, in fact they were practically new in the box. I use the Aquarelle color sticks now and then, but this was a little different. For one thing the colors are brilliant. They just glow, and I had a wonderful time with them. Here's the results of this one and a few I played with later home in the studio.
