Here are some pages of the altered book I made earlier in the year. It was a funny little book in German, all about a family of cats from what a could make out. I tore out some pages, glued some together, and gessoed everything, leaving the cute line drawings. Then I added some collage elements, patterned papers, acrylic paints and stamps for backgrounds, and cardboard tags. It was a lot of fun to make - something very soothing about applying all that gesso! And have really enjoyed having somewhere to record my thoughts of the books I've read.
