Good evening - unusual for me to post this late in the day, I shall be off to bed shortly but I wanted to share this little beauty with you all beforehand.
I've been really impressed with everyone's different versions of Altered books/art journals. However I am a huge book lover and the thought of chopping up a book horrifies me! Saw a post earlier during my WOYWW rounds where a book printed in 1880 was being altered. 1880! Wow, am sorry to say I couldn't do that, but fair play to those of you who can. So the other day I went into one of the many charity shops we have here just to see what there was and I found this -
I've seen so many Altered books, art journals etc that have so inspired me to want to have a project similar, so this will be an ongoing project during this year. I'm hoping to use lots of different techniques, some may be simple like a scrapbook page with papers and photos while others may be stamped and inked. Am sure I will get the paints out too. So I hope this book will become a mixed journal of Zoe-ness!
It fits lovely on my shelf next to the button collection. It has that look of intrigue with the materials used on the cover and back.
What a find, if anyone has any suggestions I'd be really pleased to read them, what do you think would work well, any suggestions?
Right am off to bed, enjoy your weekend, me and my boy are off to football tomorrow, then I'll be crafting, no doubt, for the rest. Take care. Zo xx
