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?

Will any of this end up in the final painting? Time will tell.
