Altered Books

   I am still continuing each month with my challenges. This month it's all about altering books. I started to alter a few of them years ago, so it's been a lot of fun getting back at them. A lot of my Creative Studio students have joined me as well. 
   The one above is an older one that I just added a few things to, to finish it up.
   Getting the book ready to work in it is the hardest part. It takes time and patience to glue pages together so they are strong enough to work with or to make niches, windows or doors. 
The niche is cut out and them the pages glued together.

A transparency is used for this window.
   Here is the niche page finished. The other one is still a work in progress.

A favourite of mine.
   This one got very dimensional but that is the charm of an altered book. You can do anything you want in it.
   If you'd like to see more or join in the fun head over to Dragonfly Dreamers Monthly Challenge fb group.

  Well I have to get back at it. So many pages to alter in these books.

Happy Creating!

Tea Bag ATC's

Do you do art with tea bags? I can't say that I had until this month when that was our ATC theme. Who knew you could do such interesting things with them. Just see the variety of cards that were turned out.








So if you haven't tried it yet, start saving your tea bags and make art!

Happy Creating!
