The Altered Book ScrapbookBook - 2006
Combine two of the hottest trends in crafts--altered books and scrapbooking--and you get an exciting technique that's sure to be a hit. Just take an existing volume and add embellishments until it's transformed into your own personal scrapbook. Susan Ure--a frequent guest on The Christopher Lowell Show --shows exactly how it's done, from choosing the right book to alter to creating a pleasing composition. Work from a variety of artists provides inspiration and ideas for materials and techniques--including metal, paper and cloth collage, lace, and beads. A sense of playfulness and creativity are all that's needed to get great results. Susan Ure has authored several books, including 10-Minute Decorating , Scrapbooking Your Vacations , and The Portable Crafter: Beading, and has appeared on The Christopher Lowell Show .
