I just really love the process of creating altered books!
For some reason, I feel like there's something magical about working on the pages of an existing book. Maybe it's the fact that, in a way, I'm writing and illustrating my own book.
(which I'd love to do some day)
In this case, I created two custom altered books for a client and it was so much fun to tell their story through my artistic voice.
There is nothing like bringing a book to life through personal images and bits of information. It's so very exciting and I love the fact that when I begin a book, I never really know how it will turn out until I'm finished. The mystery of letting the story come to life while playing on the page is the most fun for me. The story magically unfolds as it's being created.
I hope you enjoyed this tiny peek into a few of my altered book creations. I will share more altered book pages from new books that I've been working on.
In the mean time:
