Altered Book Page Spread

Spread your wings and fly...
Here's my latest altered book page spread. there's a tutorial posted at My Creative Classroom in the Free Class, Everyday Moodlings. The MCC instructors have used sketches from Creative Scrapper to show a sampling of the art in our classes we're offering this fall. This is from my altered book class, Alter THIS! Altered Book Techniques. I'd love for you to join me. The class starts October 14. Click on the class title for more info and to sign up.

"See" you in the classroom.

Did you know?

Did you know....A U.S. Department of Education* study has shed light on the effectiveness of getting an online education. The study stated that students who took all or part of their instruction online performed better, on average, than those taking the same course through face-to-face instruction.

Altered Guest Book

My niece got married over the summer and I got to alter her guest book. I was just plain white with a white bow. But my niece's wedding colors were silver, black and red. (Yes, I actually wore a black dress to the wedding!) She loved it the book! :DOriginal book...plain white

Finished book...metallic paint and rub-ons. The photo of the rose is from her bridal shower. I had to work magic to actually make this front window photo in's not exactly my strong suit! LOL!!

Inside of book. She carried red roses, hence the red rose paper. The front page is stamped and shaded...

...and the last page is stamped and shaded, too.
