"Altered Alchemy" at Art and Soul

Before I share photos from the second class I taught at Art and Soul last week, let me show you what I came home to...We had water damage to two bathrooms a few weeks before the retreat. Now asbestos folks have come and gone as well as the damage cleanup people. Now we're ready to reconstruct the bathrooms. Happy retreat memories sustain me during this process!

The gutted upstairs bathroom. Kinda wabi-sabi?

Now I'll get to the good stuff. This class was subtitled "Altered Books 101." We covered preparing the books, backgrounds, photo transfers, adding embellishments, and a lot more. I hope I led the students into becoming altered book addicts like myself!

Hi Serena -- Thank you so much for the wonderful class at ARt is You. I had so much fun and tried something I'd never dared do before! I blogged about it here. Hope to take class with you again soon. And best of luck with your bathrooms!
