Hello everyone, Karen here again with another post full of inspiration for you! I have made a video this month of me working in my altered book this time using the frames stencil from Stencilgirl and the Heart in Star and Renew stamp from Rubbermoon.


I love to work in my altered book as it stops me from feeling the panic that we all get from looking at a blank white page! I also don’t prep my pages before hand with gesso, I just throw the paint straight onto the page. Once you let the layers dry in between I’ve never had a problem with them tearing or bubbling.

Without further ado I hope that you enjoy the video! (click here to watch on YouTube)
