Advanced Altered Book Workshop...a whirlwind!

Yesterday's advanced altered book workshop at Liquid Marin, in San Rafael, CA was such a whirlwind that i forgot to take any pictures!  But here is a run down of what we did:
  1. created a text block in a vintage book
  2. painted, glazed and stamped three sheets of deli paper
  3. crinkled, folded and inked three sheets of paper to make cool backgrounds
  4. used color mists, from to create colorful splatters on vintage paper
  5. tried out walnut ink to add age and character to book pages
  6. created a faux licence plate with foam letters and metal duct tape
  7. created a copper leaf sticker with slug tape
  8. added metallic touches to a modern art image with gold or silver leaf
  9. added a tag to a book page with a slit and hidden pocket
  10. added an image of a door to a page, cut the opening and added mini bradd for door handles
  11. added an image of a window to a page, and created an opening to see beyond
  12. cut out an opening for a gate printed on transparency
  13. cut out a niche in the text block we glued at the start of the class
  14. created a pop up with a large star gazer lily flower printed on matte photo paper
  15. created a faux vintage photo from a modern glossy printed picture
phew - what a ride!  It was a three hour creative adrenaline rush!  I had fun and my students did too!  Hope to see you in the fall for more altered book classes!
