Altered book in progress

A few weeks ago I showed you some National Geographic hardcover books I was getting ready for making altered books. Today I finally had some time to start work on them. This is one I have covered the front with pussywillow and cotinus leaves and the back so far is painted. There are more altering plans for this one so I am excited to be working on it.

  1. Looks nice so far. What a coincidence, my library is having a book sale this week and I just bought two old hard covered books to play with. You are inspiring me. Can’t wait to see where you go with this.

  2. Don’t forget about children’s books too. They make great altered books because of the weight of the paper and sizes available.
