First inside pages of altered book



Made a start on altering the pages of my altered book using inks, paints and pastels



I love this method of making all the pages grungy and very old looking... what you do is rip the edges of the pages and ink them then paint with gesso and pull them apart when nearly dry and it makes instant layered worn out looking pages like the ones in the photo all ready for more layers
