Altered Books and Mixed Media!

For My Altered Book Workshop on Sunday, Nov. 9, 2014:

Musings of a Creative Spirit

This will introduce how varied altered books can be depending on choices of media, both conventional and unconventional. The form lends itself to mixed media, but some choose to use one media only…
