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?
My goodness, I forgot to post some of my favorite mail art pieces that came in June and July. The wine glass is from Maria Moesch. I'm crazy about the combination of fabrics and paints and threads and ink. The special lady is from Roberta with her MailArt handcarved stamp placed strategically. The thitd one is from Fast Eyes, whose collages are so wonderful.
This commercial card was from Pamela Vane who thinks I'd like the shop it is advertising. I'd better check it out.
This little birdie is from Carroll Woods. It is for the theme Put a Bird on it.
This last one is a commercial card from Pat, who was there when she mailed it. Ahhhhh...
