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?
Who blogs on a holiday? Who has time. Well just a quick minute. Here's the Thanksgiving card I mailed out this week. You may be on the receiving end. This is one corner of a collage we did at the Mixed Media group last year, with Roberta as instructor. I knew this would come in handy one day. These are my folks. My aunt had them pose in this position, as they were often puttering in the garden. Give my mom a pair of pruning shears, and my dad a shovel or pitch fork, and they were right at home. I'm truly grateful that I learned my love of gardening from them.
