- Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm a lapsed crafter of late but still managing my diary Scrapbooking, plus cards as required. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, not really got back to the latter since the pandemic. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I am a Christian.

Altered Book - April Showers
What better way to remember all the rain we've had this month. Hoping the umbrellas stand out as the dominant features in this spread as I didn't manage that principle last Altered book Lesson. I do believe I have included the design element of "texture" from the current lesson as I used texture folders on all the umbrellas plus a bit of ink and embossing powder too.
Really enjoyed painting the background over 2 coats of gesso and also used gesso to mix the blue colours and finally I have managed to obliterate the words on the pages. RESULT!
