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

The Story Continues

Its been a while since I have added a page to my ‘Octopode Story Book’ but I hadn’t forgotten about it – I just couldn’t find my desk over the Christmas period and when I finally did I messed it all up again getting involved in other projects.
I was going to tidy up my desk today, which was covered with the detritus following the first part of the online course I started last week (thank you to everyone who commented on my last post, esp the honest constructive criticism – much appreciated x)  and my project for the Gingersnaps tutorial – which is now finished and written up and awaiting publishing next weekend – OMG I stunned myself by being so organised
Before I tidied up – I thought I would save tidying and then making a mess again by getting out my storybook and completing a page amongst the mess
Here it is… changed the words I planned to use because Lilys digi image had such a surprised look on her face …

There are few decent white pens on the market (that I have found anyway!) The course I am doing is being run by Traci Bautista and she uses a white correction pen with a fine tip – absolutely brilliant and only about £3!
If you haven’t read the whole storybook and don’t know what on earth it’s all about– click on the tab at the top of my blog and you can see all the pages (so far) in order

Before I go here are a couple of sneak peeks of the Gingersnap tutorial – don’t forget to hop over next weekend and check it out

Can you guess what it is yet???
