Favorite Things Altered Book

December 9, 2006

I think I was just waiting for this opportunity. First of all, I’m in love with my new square punch. It’s so versatile and fun! So you can guess what all my cards are going to look like in upcoming months. Second, I’ve loved Joy Madison’s work for a long time, so that when I received the first altered book in the round robin, themed “favorite things”, I knew exactly what I was going to do.

I’m very happy with the outcome, and can’t wait to see what others do!

One teeny tiny note to book alterers who are sending their books in tightly sealed envelopes – try not to use too many types of glues/paints/other formulas. It really smells bad…:(

    Where did you get the lace! I am so desperate for old lace and I cannot find any! Beautiful layout! I am needing to borrow that idea!

    I love this and saw Joy Madison’s work and I adore it also! I looked for a 1″ square punch last week and couldn’t find, but I have a larger one I use for magazine collage. I also have a star one that is fun, kids like them too.
