Altered Book Project
Two Steps Forward, One Step Back

Two Steps Forward
Introduction Spread

I decided to get my beginning pages in line by choosing the end papers and getting the contents page set up. I was going to have a "This Book Belongs to" spread, but it turned into the authors page shown above. Many Good Earth tea packets were opened in the making of this! I wanted to find 3 quotes for my tea cup that were somewhat related to my project.

One Step Back
Blurred Vision

Thinking I was making great progress, I decided to go back to the "Sweet Tooth" spread and do some fixing. The glue I had used in making the dragon was tacky and sticking to the opposite page. Before I went to bed, I applied a coat of matte gel medium to act as a sealant, only to wake up this morning to a bleary eyed dragon.
