I have been inspired by Laurel to make an altered book. Oh how I love her books!
I think it's also because I'm asking my students to make one.
That'd be pretty rude of me to make them do one, when I dont have one of my own!
I got this book, Creative Paint Worshop, recently and LOVE it!
I took her advice with step by step instructions on basic layering as my first altered book pages.
Here's my first finished "spread".
(the book is 5x7" closed)
I used about 7 or 8 different layers when all said and done.
There are two different collage layers, a doodle/text layer, and multiple thin acrylic wash layers. I finished it off with a china marker to add more contrast and stripes.
Gosh, now I wish I had taken pictures after each layer! I'll try to remember to do that next time.
