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

Playing catch up!

....with the online Altered Book course that I am doing. It had to go on the back burner while we got ready for YCJ and my daughters Birthday and the new business but I have almost caught up now. My Book doesn't really have a theme, it's supposed to be full of things that inspire me but really I am just playing with techniques etc.. thoroughly enjoying it because it is rather liberating just playing and not worrying about it being perfect, cos it's just for me and no-one else!
So this week I have been playing with Brusho paints, Mica Sprays/clingfilm, and a super technique that I had forgotten about until our tutor explained a fused cling film technique (which I haven't yet tried but I will one day!) anyway the page on the left here is called Plastic Fantastic Fabric great fun!
Still got to do some collage pages, collage isn't really my thing, so I have got to bite the bullet and just get down to it.
Although I was a bit behind I had to just jump straight to this weeks lesson of 'pockets' I have folded the page here and am using it to display some of my favourite ATC's I have been sent in the
past, and on the right I have torn the page to make a pocket and using it to store a card that was sent me and that I treasure.
I have also just posted off another project that I have been working on and I have to say I love and it was hard to part with... a new technique for me but it won't be the last time I do it. Can't show you though until the recipient has received it!


  1. fab work on the pages my friend. I am catching up too and just wanted to call here and see how you are. I love doing journal pages in a similar way to these and yesterday had my grandson help me paint a double page ready for my next journal entry... its a lot of fun. love the pockets idea thats great.

  2. What a coincidence - I've just started making an ATC folder for one of my friends - and look what I stumble upon here! You are so ahead of your time Nick! Lol! Not sure I could emulate this little beauty though. Fantastic work mate! Oh my goodness - my word verification is FUZZLECT! What the??

  3. waiting with impatience to see what the BOX holds lol YAWN !!!!

  4. I'm luvin' seeing this develop.


  5. Blimey you have been busy. Really really want to start a book (Keep liberating them from the 'for sale' trolley at work) but can't seem to get going. Love the pockets.
