Anywho, I had done some scrap-booking, and some book altering with mixed media. (Fancy was to say I was grooving on gluing bits and pieces of paper, jewelry and wire to an old hardcover book.)
Then my man looked beyond my sticky fingers (covered in glue and OK, maybe, just maybe, some maple syrup) … and he said “That is so cool! If you make that bigger I’d hang that on the wall.” Being the faithful woman that I am, I complied and … to my surprise … I enjoyed it so much I haven’t stopped since. Here’s the third one I made outside the books, so to speak.
