    Altered Catalog: Rev 20/30

    "September: it was the most beautiful of words, he’d always felt,
    evoking orange-flowers, swallows, and regret."
    ~Alexander Theroux


    In an altered book, you may be hesitant to tear out something you don't like, so if you don't like how a page turns out... just keep going!  The first layer on these pages was cardstock, with journaling about our summer garden. It just didn't click so I Mod Podged layers of scrap paper, paint chips, maps, excerpts from old books, magazine clippings, typed journaling.

    The original journaling is no longer visible but I like knowing that it was there. It adds depth to the page. Next, some gesso and edging with Caran D'Ache Neocolor II crayons. Rough orange and turquoise framing was painted with Golden fluid acrylics. Added rubber stamping here and there. It's fun to see how pages evolve and have their own personality ~ you never know where you will wind up! It's all about enjoying the process.

    thanks for that post! I am new to art journals and really do not like the page I am working on-but I do have thoughts written on there that mean allot to me-I am going to keep adding another layer instead of tearing it out:)

    I'm so happy you liked the idea of layering... Good luck in altering your current page until it's something you really like!
