Altered Book – Update

I just finished my altered book project, pretty much just in time, and I think it turned out great!  I recycled some artwork from an old project, pulled out some beautifully colored old picture pages to save for a future project and cut the rest of the pages down.  I designed a new cover, colored it in watercolor pencil and titled my new book, “In the Octopus’s Garden”.  I hope you will consider joining me at the exhibition preview on Tuesday, March 6th at the Satellite Beach Library from 6:30 – 7:30 pm.  The library is located at 751 Jamaica Blvd.

For further information, call Paula Steere (321) 917-3236.   The exhibit will be on display at the library from March 7th through March 31st during regular library hours.

My book "In the Octopus's Garden"Renew Exhibition - Altered Books

I’m participating in an altered book project for the first time.  My plan is to recycle some artwork from a previous project and use it to create my book.  I also took pages I liked from the book and put them away to use in a future piece.  I spent the weekend at an art show where I was able to create the cover for my book.  It should be finished soon and displayed in the “Renew” exhibition at the Satellite Beach Library.
