Here are, but a few things going on in the studio...
Altered Book Project
ready for me to bind together!
I purchased a 3-ring cardboard folder
from the thrift-store for 25 cents.
Gave it a rough surface.
(sanded it down with sandpaper)
Applied acrylic paints.
(I'm thinking about adding more texture, design, and patterns to the front cover)
I really like the polka-dotted pattern on the inside!
(I will keep that look for the inside cover)
for the corrugated cardboard pages,
I will be creating binging inserts for the pages, out of a verity of materials
and "artsy" tabs through out the book.
(fun stuff, right!!!)
I will be posting pictures of the completed project next week!
These metal little containers caught my eye!
Iam really glad I stopped
took a speak
to what was inside these metal containers!
You know what I am thinking here...?
On the Go
These containers can be filled with-
possibilites are endless!
I am going to paint the outside of the metal containers
see where it goes from there...
The Altered Paper
I partnered up with
Just look at this fantastic
Loaded with "artsy' goodies too!!

scrabble game piece charm!

Can't wait to see your completed book- I never thought of using a binder... And what a great buy at the thrift store!!! When I saw those little round ones in the case I thought the same thing- good for you :)ReplyDelete
