Some call us monsters for ripping up and altering books--I think of us more as creatives who can see potential in anything! Let's gather together with kindred spirits and rip and alter to our hearts' content! We'll take an ordinary vintage book and turn it into something extraordinary using paint, embellishments, and reconstructive techniques. You bring the book, (BYOB!) and I'll supply the rest! Each part of the book will be put to good and new uses as we deconstruct our books and reconstruct them into fabulous works of art. We'll also create our own unique collage papers to be used inside our new books and explore several journaling jumpstarts and background starting techniques to get you going!
