One of the books I'm altering at the moment is about framed objects and views seen through windows. I've been cutting suitable pictures out of magazines with collage in mind.
The idea is to cut apertures through some of the pages of the book and edge the 'window' with the collaged picture frame. A present Laura gave me a couple of days ago is making life easier. I'm not usually one for gadgets but this little cutter is helping me cut perfect ovals.
Never one to throw anything away I think the oval shapes I cut out might have a part to play in another altered book I'm working on.
This book's about birds' eggs and I really think the cutouts will look quite egg-like once I've painted them and maybe flicked a bit of paint off a toothbrush!
Of course it's easy to get carried away. I have revealed a lovely moth through the window in my altered Moth book but I have to exercise restraint! Can't have windows in every page of every book just because I've got a new gadget!!
Mind you it has given me some interesting coloured eggs!
So that's 3 different books on the go at the same time - it's quite interesting to see how I can cannibalise one and use it in another!
Thanks for reading this far. Please check in again soon. All the best, Linda
