Altered book





I have recently made an altered book for a cj that I am in the photos aren't great and it is now in the loving hands of someone else, but let me know what you think. I ripped out pages, glued pages together cut out a niche and painited it all black. I painted the cover pink and then covered it with embelsihments and mesh on the front and aged it with ink on the back. All in all I had great fun making it.
Oh and if you are wandering the cj is about loosing weight and the LO explains how I got here, marmite loads of lovely butter spread onto doorsteps of fresh bread might explain how i am not a sleek size eight
