Long Live Art - Cardboard Alteration

Altered Book Project
This page I decided to 
think outside the box.
As I have stated in previous posts...
there are no rules to this project
and
I am not limited to the use of materials needed to create the book.
Sounds good...?!
I hope so.
This page is created by merging several art elements and techniques.
There is a lot of playful discovery
and
original ideas taking place here as this book takes shape.
First... 
I created a template.
Second...
I discovered through this process, that working with 
corrugated cardboard can be difficult.
Not a very flexible medium.
 The challenge was met and conquered!
Third...
the page was created and given a new purpose...
of self expression.
