my Dear friend Heather
came to me and a few other artists about participating in an altered book RR. I have never altered a book but I was intrigued and because it was Heather, I said Sure why not! Well I have never had such a sense of hopelessness in conjunction with a project as I have had with this one. I even joined a new Yahoo group , started by another friend just for altered books so I could learn to do this.
It turned out that we took postage into consideration and decided to do tip ins for each others books. That way we weren't really constricted when it came to the size of the books we used. Once I knew what was expected of me, it's been a blast! Here are some of the pages I've done for other's books.
The text on the white blocks are garden poems printed in a dark grey as I didn't want them to overpower the paper, which is gorgeous and a favourite. I'm a sucker for patterned paper!
