One method to simplify the work on an altered book is to use children’s cardboard books as base. They often have the advantage, too, to have interesting shapes.
Once I began such a book (on the picture you see the original book).
These are the first two pages. I used amongst others (just as for the artist book) self-dyed paper, packing tape transfers, embroidery on paper and dried flowers and leaves.
Because of the embroidery I don’t immediately glue the papers in but I finish the pages first.
The following pages aren’t finished yet – just another UFO (unfinished object) ;-)
