Starting another altered book




Happy Memorial Day!  I hope everyone is enjoying parades and barbecues but also remembering the brave soldiers who fought and died for our freedom.

After returning home last week, my back went out and I was immobile for three days. I couldn't even make it to my art room which was the hardest part of the whole ordeal! 

Thankfully it's feeling much better now and I have managed to get back into a routine of working on an altered book I recently started. I am again following along with LorriMarie on YouTube as she posts each background technique.

So far, I have completed five spreads (I'm including the link to each specific video). These, of course, are just the backgrounds. I will go back later to add focal points and finishing touches.


Technique #1: Torn pockets, gelato, gold foil



Technique #2: fabric, texture paste and stencil; envelope pockets


envelope flap open


Technique #3: acetate window tip-in

Technique #4: watercolor/plastic wrap, copper foil, vellum pocket tip-in



Technique 5: napkin collage, pocket page - left spread


Right spread


Center pocket page with tag

Have a great week!
