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?
Susan Gaylord mentioned a challenge on her blog recently and I jumped right on it and sent link and challenge off to friends. If you follow this link to her blog, I won't need to explain it all here. It all has to do with stacking books so the titles form a poem. Reminds me of the fun of found word poetry, so had to try it. Here's a sample done from things scattered on my desk.
In this case it may be more like a very short story. Look around your house and try this for fun. It's not a messy challenge for a change. And you do not need to find any supplies.
