Altered books






I love making art! All kinds of art. I love art quilting, crazy quilting, art journals, altered books, calligraphy and on it goes. I flit between my love of paper and my love of fabric. Maybe I have a touch of ADD. I'm even starting to combine paper and fabric art together. I don't have anything I am ready to show as yet but it will come. For now I will post some of my altered books. This book is about knocking and having the door open. I used shades of purple and beige throughout this book. I rarely if ever have a specific color scheme. The picture on the left is of the cover of the book. It's a little hard to tell but I used a real glass door knob on the cover. I love it! I have so many altered books on the go and so many ideas for more to come.
