Altered Books Simplified

unikatissima Altered Books Simplified

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) ;-)
