My local library controls it's own book budget and you can request any book you like!!
In fact they are quite grateful because it means more variety on their shelves. So I thought I'd try the system and it worked!!
I ordered Altered Art projects by Jill Haglund, I don't buy many books as I prefer to spend my money on supplies so I requested this book out of curiosity and because it had such good reviews.
I love Deb Trotter and Carlene Federers' work as they do the ultimate cowgirl themed altered shadow boxes and I have always harboured a secret desire to be a cowgirl!
These hearts were inspired by Audrey Hernandez you can see hers on the cover.
Helena gave some ultra thick chipboard and I mean ultra thick!! I had to cut the hearts with a craft knife. These are 2 in a series of Xmas decorations for a family member. I just need to get hold of some more suitable photos of the rest of my siblings and get them posted before the deadline! Yikes!!
The reverse side is covered in a Victorian style Xmas paper.
Thanks for looking and leaving such lovely comments.
