30 Days - July 3

I had a fun day with my friend Cheryl, playing with the altered books for our local artists group exchange. She has been journaling for years, and is fearless. I do bits and think, and then do bits and think. Here is what I've accomplished today in the Fairy altered book:

The green page has a couple more layers of paint and some acrylic stamping.

This is the preceding spread, painted buff and using Tim Holtz tape (with glue) to hold the very old and wanting to crumble pages together. It's an awesome book, and while the pages want to fall apart, I'm willing them to behave. With enough paint, tape and papers, they will hold nicely.


On another note, the garden was especially delightful this morning before the sun broke through the clouds. This spirea is in full bloom... don't you just love the colors?

Hi HHCampbell -- I followed your link from Traci's site and glad I did. Fascinating to see the many wonderful things we are all doing in this 30 day challenge. I must admit I don't know much about altered books, but I love books so I love the idea of preserving them. You're doing beautiful work.

Here's my project http://thedowriteblog.blogspot.com/2011/07/30-days-of-art-day-3.html

I followed you from Traci's blog, too, and I really, really love the buff painted pages in your book!

I volunteer at an organic farm and I have to say I get so inspired by the rich colors flowering from our wellness garden. Thanks for sharing your garden photo what beautiful rich color!
