Someday, the altered art you make today will be
old, faded, falling apart, and someone else will salvage the bits and use them
in new altered art.It's the best that any piece of art can hope for

Altered Book Course Week 8

Can't believe we are Week 8 already! Not sure how many weeks we have left but I am seriously running out of pages to alter! Really enjoying this course as I am really just playing. The whole Project is just for me, it's not a pressie, it's not for a workshop, it's not going for sale, it's not even going to be seen by anyone else (well apart from the odd blog follower!) so it's just for me to play with, experiment and generally just experiment and mess about! How liberating is that!

Anyway this week was ZIPS!

My pages have been painted, glimmered, scrawled on, stamped on, decopatched, doodled on and generally abused!
One problem though is that after finishing and unzipping.. one of the zips has decided it's a bit dodgy, so it must be zipped and unzipped with lots of TLC!

Well that's it for now, but one last thing before I go, do you know I really think that this Arty/crafty malarkey is really a live-saver... how many of us may crack up completely if we didn't have our playtime to lose ourselves in?..... which brings me to a small confession, I was going out for lunch today with a friend and was really looking forward to some time out and a girlie natter, unfortunately she had to cancel at the last minute..... (sad face) ...... so instead of eating I went to the cake shop... (nope not the cream variety- the decorating variety) and bought myself a mould instead

well perhaps two
or was it three ??
No I am sure it was only one!
