Altered Book Journal Cover (Mixed Media & Video)

I have two exciting things to share today.  The first is the completion of the cover of my altered book journal.

Altered Journal Cover

You can see the cover before the transformation “here”.

I have so many ideas floating through my mind and I can’t wait to start "renovations" inside the book.

This is a short video with my thoughts and musings of how I approached the project…..
