So my ramble this week is on, altered books...because that is what I've been up to and where my head is currently at.
Saying I have thousands of suitable vintage and antique books to alter is probably no exaggeration & it's always something that appeals to me, however when I come to create I'm usually drawn to a journal I have handmade. Not so much at the moment though, at the moment I am just thinking books, books, books.
It's not like I need to start a new journal, I have plenty going but the muse is calling and she usually gets her way (plus I do have a fairly good idea of a particular use I have for the journals I'm making so she has swayed my logic brain somewhat to her thinking too - which makes a change).
Here is a lil video showing how I am prepping two altered books for my next art journals:
...and I did make something in it,
I started this lil page...
using the same techniques shared in my recent pastels and charcoal video tutorial here, but this time I favoured the charcoals.
That's it for today my sweets, I am super busy making my 21 Secrets Lesson *awesome*, I have to keep this ramble short and sweet. If you wanna come join in the 21 Secrets LOVE click the link to take a goosey gander at what's on offer:
