Hi AB lovers and anyone else 'just visiting'
I have finally finished Lesson 4 of my book.
It took some doing to find the time to play with all that glue. It certainly made me think about how many glues I own . . . many more than I realised.
But not nearly as many as Elizabeth our wonderful tutor. See her collection here. altered book lover.
Here you can see I did some experimental gluing on spare pages before gluing my book for real . . just in case I messed it up. I still have some work to do on these pages ( lots coz they are just glued and should be decorated as well and stuff ).
I made the tags from a collection of train tickets I have been saving to use in my book.... I like the train! I used a Tim Holtz die cutter.
When you travel (my book's theme ) you have to have transport and the train is one of my favourite.
I inked and stamped the tags and wrote a brief note about each glue . . then forgot which page was which so I glued them to the first page and made it my 2 page spread using Gesso.
I glued almost everything on with the Gesso, except the tree which was much heavier, so I used Anita's tacky glue.
This page shows where I live now, a town in the south of England.
This page shows some of my thoughts about the town.
NOTE TO SELF: I must remember that this is not a scrap booking project, so should be more experimental with my techniques.
The pictures are not very good as they were taken in the evening with the flash.
Anyway, the next lesson might prove difficult as I dont usually plan I just 'do it', like many of us I suspect.
There is a lot to read and take in and think about, I will try.
thanks for visiting, please leave a comment and I will visit you right back.
