Altered Book!!

On the Saturday of last weekend I had the priviledge of doing a workshop with Jenny Crossley at Scraptivate. What an inspirational lady, her work is amazing. We made the Swallow Book and it was my very first altered book (most definitely not my last). Wow what a day it was very much non stop and full on. We started at 9.30am, there was lots of distressing with paint, cutting, gluing and preparing etc. until it colminated into our finished books. I left at round 7.oopm that night and I can tell you I was completely exhausted. A huge thanks to Kelsey who arranged for Jenny to come to Western Australia. Here are some of the pages:

I was going to add to my pages but have decided to leave this one as it is and intend to make another one using some photos of my Dad growing up and give it to him for his birthday.
Thanks for looking, have a fabulous day.


  1. Great book Karen. It is unbelievable how many different creations did come up from the same class.
