More altered pages
This is the book I work in when I teach my altered book workshops. I tend to do experiments in this book so it ends up a mish mash of styles. I don't mind this as I have a wide range of tastes when it comes to art and journals.
The top three images show two pages, with two shortened pages in the middle. I've used lots of transfers on the third image and hand written text.
In the next image, I decided to concentrate on art and art supplies. I used ads from the yellow pages as part of the background, along with serviettes. I painted some lace, made letters from some thin brass I had in my junk box and stamped to tie it altogether with my eraser stamps.
The last photo shows a page the revolved around the brochure for the movie Golden Flower. Again I used serviettes for some of the background. I tore up the brochure then stuck pieces of it down, I used my eraser stamps and even a discarded sugar packet to finish off. I like to give some of my pages an edging held with eyelets. It strengthens the page and provides somewhere to add extras.
I'm going through Randi Feuerhelm-Watt's Wide Open book and cards. This is a totally different way of journaling for me, but I'm loving it.
