I have been eager to make an altered book for some time, now that I have a place to work I hope to do so very soon. In anticipation I purchased a creative card set, Wide Open by Randi Feuerhelm-Watts. It contains a small notebook and 50 cards with prompts and observations that help start the journaling process. I have a hard time keeping one journal, I am more of a napkin, back of envelope, scrap piece of paper kind of girl. The idea of taking a existing book and changing it's original meaning through art is a fun one and I think these cards will help me do just that.
