I have finished up one project and am well on my way to finishing the next! I have several new projects coming along and tomorrow my art groups meets and I will get the next Altered Book from the local RR that I am participating in.
Here is a picture of the beaded braclet created as a gift for my Mother-in-Law.
I had seen a bracelet very similar to this and tried to get the same effect on my own. I think that I will call it Twining Vines.
This next project began it's life as a child's board book. I have striped the top layer of each page and collaged each with pieces of torn text pages. Then I applied various shades of green paint.
This book will become a collection of gardening quotes and photos from my own garden. I have been playing with the photos on the computer and applying different filters to the shots. I am in the process of printing the photos now and I will post the final project soon. For now, here are the front and back covers of the book.
