A busy and fabulous week for me as I was honoured to share my love of altered books with a group of grade 5 to 8 students at Meadowbrook School. What I love the most about sharing what I do is how people take the supplies and, as their creative juices begin to flow, create amazing works that are totally their own. I think that's one of my favorite parts of working on altered books and using mixed media...the sky really is the limit. Once you see a few samples and begin to sift through the materials available, there is no right or wrong, it's just trial and error. And the errors often become beautiful things. And I really love how kids make everything their own...no judgement. I also like how this project just begins with me but moves on to become a longer project that grows and improves over time. Another amazing group of kids!
