Today I started on my altered book project. It is my first attempt. It will be more of a wall decoration when I am done. At least, that is my plan. I saw in a magazine a wall display with all white objects and one looked like an open book that was all white. I decided to combine that idea with the altered book idea. I found an old book being given away at a local library and it had words I could pick out that related to a trip to North Carolina we took this summer so I gessoed around those words and will include them when I hand write some journaling in. Then I plan to add a couple of pics from our trip. I have gessoed everything and now have to decide if I want to paint it white or make a more colorful background. I don't want my pictures to get lost in a busy background. Maybe a golden color, don't know yet.
