I just haven't done it. Altered books - I've seen the videos, pages, beautiful pages, read the how to....but never really worked on one. A friend asked me to work in her book - actually, I proposed a book swap to some crafty-artsy friends and "Marie" and others took me up on it. So, here I am on the first try for Marie. I agreed to make 4 pages in her book using the theme of Hopes and Dreams. Thanks to my friends at AAWA for answering my many questions. I had fun using beeswax, stencils, inks and more for backgrounds.
