Do I really need to get involved with another medium? Come on, I'm having a hard enough time keeping up with what I'm doing now. So even though my inner voice was telling me, don't go there, my brain decided that I should sign up for an Altered Book workshop at my local scrapbooking shop, Rosie's Art Carnival.
So then I went in search of an old book....should it be a really good old book or an old book that had seen better days? Off to St. Vincent DePaul's in search of a book. I think I found a couple of real treasures..........look at these books? Do I really want to cut up A Sherburne Inheritance or The Hilltop Girl. These are covers that you don't see too much of these days. I know I definitely wouldn't consider cutting up French Lyrics of the Nineteenth Century. I'll admit, I probably won't read them and unless I become fluent in French I won't be able to read French Lyrics. I have one more back-up book just in case I can't take the knife to one of these.
This book was just too good to pass up....who knows when I'm going to have to look up a French word....although I'm sure there a lot of new French words since this book was published. I thought it would be great as a back-drop for some of my jewelry photos.
I'm off to the beach to take on a new interest....maybe I'll have something to show and tell when I return.
Until then...........Happy Beading!
