Altered book lesson 11 - Altered book les 11


How are you all doing? Nice weather and good spirits?? Wel we haven't have good weather, days on end with rain, rain and more rain. Today will be a nice day and the weatherman said next week will be one with summer weather (remind you dutch summer weather so there still may be some rain).
Throughout last weeks of rain, every time my spirit went down hill I've been crafting. And up the spirtit went :). Ive bought a great book: Artist's Journal Workshop, creating your life in words and pictures written by Cathy Johnson. It's a really practical book with lots of examples, ideas and tips.
I love it!
I've also started another project: to draw a face every day. I haven't draw, sketched, painted faces since highschool which is a long long time ago :). I've been collecting faces from magazines and folders to inprove my skill. Haven't used them jet. Maybe I will show the whole sketchbook in a video when it's finished.
Oh and of course I've been working in my altered book. This two weeks lesson was about pockets.
Elizabeth showed lots and lots of examples on her blog and it was so much fun to make some!

The one on the right is kind of a secret pocket.
Degene aan de rechterkant is semi-verborgen

I've prepared the left page for another page with secret pockets. I've the idea just have to figure out how to make it :)
De linkerpagina is geprepareerd voor een pagina met verborgen pockets. Het idee zit in m'n hoofd maar ik moet nog even uitzoeken hoe ik het ga maken.
And the one I'm sooooo proud of. It worked out so well. :)  :)  :)  :)
En degene waar ik super trots op ben. Gewoon omdat hij helemaal gelukt is. :)  :)  :)  :)

Want to know where the secret pocket is???
