Altered Books

Megan and her pink hair dryer
We had some fun making "altered books" over the weekend. What you do is you take an old book (mine was about dinosaurs) and you paint the pages white with gesso. After painting the page, concealing text and leaving illustrations or bits of text to remain, you blow dry the page dry, then move on to the next page. It's actually a long and monotonous project, but when you're done you have a cool book to use as a journal, sketchbook, or whatever kind of book you want!
