However, I did get plenty of time to play in my sewing room! Rainy weather is perfect for that! Not much spring cleaning got done, it will have to wait. This mornings mail bought the latest copy of Quilting Arts. I think it will be early to bed tonight with a nice cuppa and a good read! (I sat up till midnight last night watching The DaVinci Code on tv. I have seen it at the movies when it first came out and read the book, which was brilliant, but thought I'd watch it again. Enjoyed it just as much! (anyway, I'm waffling a bit here!)
Yesterday I worked on my altered book, I'm still debating about how I'm going to do the cover. I think it may make or break the book, so I'm too scared to do anything to it! However the insides are progressing.
I was very inspired by Scary's altered tin she sent me, and I had this little tin which I thought might be small enough to incorporate into the book some how. So I cut out a niche in the back pages and painted them and the tin fits neatly into the hole.
Now I just have to paint the tin, and do some altering! I haven't figured that one out yet. Does anyone know if I need to sand the tin first?
Yesterday I also worked on 2 small art journals. The covers on both are made of silk paper, but the inside pages are made from newspaper glued together and then painted. Very effective, that idea came from Donna Downey. Although hers probably looks way cooler than mine!!!
