Altered Books / My Current Passion

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Water Spirit Legends ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is the title for my new altered book. I 've really been enjoying making altered books.I started my first altered book , a halloween book back in the fall , but never finished it.For Christmas I made my 2 daughters a altered style scrapbook.Using altered style techniques I created them a wonderful scrapbook with photos from their childhood at christmas.They loved their books.

My current book will be all about mermaid legends. I'm posting a photo of the cover , although it is still a work in progress.I'm hoping to create a fun , cute , whimsical style book.It has a 3-d effect , real sand , shells and other items.I'll be posting more about this book as it comes together.

I'm planning to make a altered book for the SPRING FLING giveaway . Will post more about the giveaway tonight or tommorrow.

Hope you're blessed with a wonderful day !

I'm doing an altered book for my step-granddaughter's birthday. I've started several over the years but this one feels really right (unlike the others lol).

Love yours.
