The Very Best Part........

Monday, March 28, 2011

The Altered Book workshop was totally fun and went way too fast.  We learned some basic techniques as that's about all time allowed.  But they were techniques that you can build on.  Much to my surprise the instructor provided each of us with a book for our class.  So the dilema of which book to alter and should I really cut up such a beautiful book was suddenly gone.  

I hope I'm not getting hooked, but if you can go by some of the supplies I purchased after class, I don't think I can deny that I'm hooked. 

My book was called Heart and Soul

These are just a few of the techniques we learned
Making a pocket
Embellishing a page by sewing on a button and attaching a domino with wire
Make a niche and a compartment for a drawer

I still have the front and back of the book to work on, gluing more pages together, and adding embellishments.

But the Very Best Part was meeting some wonderful people in the workshop whom I hope I will see again!  For me, that's what it's about.

Until then.............Happy Beading!  (Am I going to have to start adding.....Happy Altered Bookmaking?)

So cool. I've always wanted to do things like that, but I draw a blank when I try to dream up ideas.

This looks so very interesting! I'd also love to try it, there are lots of suitable books in my cupboards :-)

It sounds like so very much fun! Inspires me to go try my hand at creating something new.
