I am so glad to be back on my blog and posting again...I have been a bit busy with my classes going and all, such as "Alter Me Silly", where we are slowly going through altering a book MY way, lol! We are each using the largest measuring book we feel we can handle, and mine measures 10 x 14 inches, and is a blast to do!! You can click on the class name above and still sign up to take the class if you are interested. (it is only $15.00 for 6-8 weeks of classes!) We are up to week 3, which will be done this weekend, and all of the beginning classes, supply list and all of the chatter back and forth is all there if you want to work at your own pace! This next week, we are going to get into the DETAILS of the pages, and I will show how I build up the designs and layers of hand done and collage details to finally have a finished page or spread...it is going to be FUN, so join us if you can!!! Below is a sample of the type work we will be doing (bear in mind this is just a sample, and not the exact page we will be doing...all of my pages are distinctly unique, and yours will be also..click on each picture to see them larger and with more detail.)

Anyway, don't be afraid to use inexpensive art supplies on your altered books and other small art! I love experimenting with art supplies, and these less expensive items allow me to be able to experiment and not worry about messing them up...and I really recommend having a can of the clear Krylon spray varnish in the type coating you want, whether satin, shiny, or matte!! It is also great for use over acrylics, so it is a great all around supply to have!
