And in that place it was
one blue flower
where he thought there were only
the freesias and the gardenias...This is my first "altered book" and my first hidden poem. Some years ago I come across altered book techniques and I was completely appealed by the idea to make my own someday. This page belongs to a book in spanish but I tried to make the translation as best as I could.
Michelle Perkett (her Etsy shop here) colored with colored pencils that I added dots of orange acrylic paint to her hair before cutting it and place it with foam tape. I love to color this image, it´s gorgeous! one of my favorites...
video tutorial, it took me three tries to get it right but now I think I got the technique. I wanted to add some pins but I didn´t have any with matching colors, so I took two and painted glue on their pearled heads and rolled them gently on glitter, tapped the excess and let it dry, and I finished the whole rose by stitching some glass beads on its center too.
I´m joining the following challenges:
