Altered Book Class

Elizabeth of Altered Book Lover and beyond has generously given her time and amazing knowledge and is teaching a free online class to almost 200 people. Her expertise and commitment to this class is unbelievable and I, for one, have learned so much and appreciate all her efforts to make this available free of charge to so many of us.

Here are some of what I've done so far in this class.
Background papers below done in acrylics and baking soda and applied with a credit card

Niche cut out. My first so it wasn't the cleanest.

And for more ideas on altering books, how about this awesome idea? Coffee Table blogged at Design Sprout.

Thanks for visiting,

Nice site you have. Thanks for sharing. I've dabbled in altered books and really love working with mixed media. So far I've done a weddng book and a "sister" book for my sister.
