Altered Book Spread & Paint Party Friday

Trust Your Muse
This is one of my favorite altered book spreads. I enjoyed making this one very much. I am linking up with Paint Party Friday put on by two lovely ladies, Eva and Kristen. This week they are having a fabulous give-away celebrating the one-year anniversary of PPF. Head over and link up to enter, and also check out some wonderful art while you are there! I am so pleased I have found PPF, as I find I am painting more and more in my books and also painting on other surfaces now. It is quite an inspiration.


I am also enjoying working in my Book of Days, a free workshop by Effy Wild. I am using an old shorthand book and altering it. It has been so rewarding. I will be posting a few pics of it, too, as I go along.

There are so many great things about this. Love the bold colored background with the more sedate collaged elements, and the spoon skirt is a great bit if humor and whimsey.
