I am thrilled and honored to be part of May's Monthly Muse here on Gingersnap Creations. A few months ago, I was asked to share some tips for creating altered book pages. My altered book pages are very basic, I can't draw worth beans, nor do I add fancy handwriting...but the sky is the limit with composing altered pages for those of you that possess these talents.
One of my favorite altered books that I have created uses Paper Whimsy images and the poetry of Hilda Conkling.
I decided to make the tutorial in pdf format with step by step instructions. Making altered pages is quite addicting and loads of fun. You will need just a wee bit of patience allowing the collage to dry, and adding the text is a bit time consuming...but the stories you can create are well worth it!
