Home & Garden Altered Book
It's amazing how just a little touch of spring outside can energize you on many levels. I sat down last night knowing that I wanted to do something in this book....but what??? Since it's Easter Sunday...I wanted to see flowers blooming. My sister gave me a roll of duct tape for Christmas...I know that sounds funny, but it's the checkerboard pattern in this art work. It's been calling to me but I wasn't sure where I wanted to use it...until last night.
If you've ever used duct tape around the house (and who hasn't), you know that in a instant, you could end up with a kink or crease in it...it's very sticky.
I didn't want to end up with it ruining my page, because once I put it on the page....I knew that would be it. So...I got smart! I took a piece of copy paper and laid down two strips...clean and perfect! And then I cut the shapes I wanted and glued them to the page. Perfect solution and they clearly are the "statement" on these pages. And I used a hole punch and cut some of the leftovers and glued dots. The big circles are from a page that I did with my Gelliart plate and cut with a punch. Am I finished with this? Never sure...I could end up adding a bumble bee or butterfly...but one thing I do know...it makes me feel as if spring has arrived.
