So, the first good thing that happened was I went to the mailbox, and found a package from my good friend, Gretchen (who lives in Houston). She had collected these wonderful papers for me from a friend of hers who does origami. How cool is this!
Then, last night, I went to another Friday Night Painting Party put on by Carlynne and Kelli (aka Hershberger/Huff). We learned how to make altered books! For this book, I decided to do a theme based on my journey of living in 6 different states - the first one being Kansas, where I was raised, got married and gave birth twice.
This book was a children's board book, but there are many other ways to use other kinds of books. So, when I get this one finished, I just might do another one with more texture, and not so much collage. We'll see.
