A Small Altered Chunky Book

Front






This is one of those small child chunky books. I used brown paper bags that I crinkled and glued on as my background. I then used assorted inks direct from the pad to add background color. The images are mostly artchick or artazine images, the stamps are mostly from Paperbag Studio's. I did use a napkin or two for background after the ink was applied. This is a quick and simple altered book. I think I completed it in an evening.

Your book pages are gorgeous. I love the purple-blue colors. The digital rusty springs are neat too. Thanks for sharing.
