Altered Book

This past summer, I wanted to make something special for my daughters son, who was born in Sept. I took an old children's board book, and papered over each page. Then I started painting a story I had told Tori when she was a child. (My sister had told me a version of the same story when I was 6!) Here is what I gave my daughter:








There were many other adventures in purple land...maybe someday I'll have time for another book.
I hope you're having a good weekend!

Thanks for stopping by my blog Debbie!!
Great story.... lovely job!

The answer to you question on how the lady was painted smoothly on my texture video is that she was an image transfer out of my journal page. I did it in an earlier video!
