Hi book lovers
If you are of a nervous disposition about caring for books ... look away now 'coz you might not like what you are about to see..... cutting up a book!
Many bloggers all over the world are joining Elizabeth altered book lover in an on-line tutorial.
This is the book I am using, I brought it in a charity shop for 60p. . . . a bargain in the true spirit of the tutorial.
I had to laugh at the first sentence in the book, this book is going to be altered to 'within an inch of it's life' LOL
Well I read Elizabeths instructions, but had to stop just before cutting pages out of the book. . . . . could I do it? It's not right
Yes of course I did, I used the easier 2nd option obviously, why make more work?
I must say it was like pulling teeth !
Altogether I pulled out 64 pages, that's a lot of teeth.
After that trauma, I looked the book up on Amazon and discovered it was a first edition and selling for £15 doh !
On the right hand side you can just see the book I am using to record my' workings' in ... it is one of my own hand bound book with an embroidered cover, kind of appropriate.
This is the chest I am keeping my book and embellishments in, I got it free recently for subscribing to a magazine.
Now all I have to do is find something to put in my niche, I think my theme is going to be travel.
