Featured Work: Altered Book—Cares of Tomorrow Must Wait
So excited to show you my first finished altered book. I have others in the works, but I put the final touches on this one yesterday. I left the cover plain. But, when you open the book, there is a surprise inside. The light was not right for a great picture, but this will give you an idea.
I cut out a window in the book, so, inset, there is a collage with a red chair and pink blooms. A collage with water, fish, flowers, mountains and trees dominates the rest of the pages. I went back to a simple design for the back cover: three yellow daisies in a purple container.
As with many altered books, it does not close completely. I like that it stands up without support on my shelf and I can enjoy the scenery!
