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?
Back in October when I posted this picture, I proclaimed it a masterpiece. Of course that was just my personal opinion, but I had enough faith in it to enter it in the Annual Spring Show at the Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Winery in Acampo. Judging waa on Monday with a panel of three highly respected judges. The good news is - they unanimously liked it too, enough to give it a second place in the mixed media division. I cleaned up the edges, mounted it on white with a buff colored mat and framed in about a 2 inch black wooden frame. I'm happy.
