The one thing I like about altering books, is that anything goes. I never plan my projects, they just happen. I might take inspiration from other pieces i see , be on the net or in a magazine, but rarely do I plan pieces, they just happen! How do you work, do you write copious notes, do sketches?, follow them to the letter, , or just create? What do you do if it all looks awful, chuck it in the bin, or try to resurrect it? I have lots of half finished tags, and pieces! The wonderful thing about an altered book, is that if it is truly awful, you can tear it out and start again, or leave it to remind you. Here is a couple of bits that I created last week. The niche is from last weekend's workshop ...stamp used is Crafty Notions spirals, stamped into Terra, and sprayed with greens and yellow Color wash. Came out looking like wood! The moon faces are moulds agian from Crafty Notions.
and this is the cover from another book, which I gessoed through a stencil, allowed to dry, and then painted with Dylusions paints ( now not available sadly) . Add some stamps from The Artistic Stamper, large new swirl, and words, and a bit of bling!
Two totally different pieces!
So tell me do you plan, or just create?
Have a creative day
