Altered Book with Jennie

Today I've had a really good time time when I did the Altered Book class With Jennie from the Stamp Connection who came to a local shop at Fareham so nice not to have to travel to far :)
Of course we all started by looking at what our book was call and most of us Oh I want to read it mine was called the Age of Elegance expecting a Romance but no it was about wars anyway I digress
Lot's of different product Terra paste spray inks gesso UTTE. The front back and spine is gesso through a stencil and stamping with gesso dabbed with colour wash

Somewhere in the middle we did the folded page with tags
Then at the back we did the niche  it could have been deeper but I was losing the will to live sticking all the pages together lol it was then covered with Terra paste and stamping into it
 and then onto the melt pot for a mold to go into the niche
I shall have to continue this book as I'm so pleased with my results,
Thanks for popping by and if you get the chance for a class with Jennie you won't be dissapointed :)

This looks very 'YOU' Von and I can well imagine that you had a great time doing it. Love the front of the book though it does look complicated to me.

Hope you show us more pages as you do them

Kindest regards Chrissie xxx

What a fabulous altered book Von, so full of colour and techniques. Sorry I missed but as it turned out I wouldn't have been able to go if I had booked it.
Happy Sunday.
