My Hand Book

This is the first page in my hand book. It's the one I'm making in the on-line altered book class. For the background, I used paper from the gas station you use to dry your windows with. I colored them using various acrylic paints I watered down. The image is from a magazine and the idea is to reinforce the page, a technique I learned from Linda Findley.

3 thoughtful remarks:

This looks great - I have been hearing good things about your altered book class from people who have joined. I can't see any info on it, though. If you have a moment I'd love to know more (about how to join and etc etc). Kimberley.spence@googlemail.com

Thanks!
