WOYWW: Focus on what is really important!

Oh the woes of a WOYWWer!
:^) This time it is my camera.
So I used my IPOD to take my pictures!
On the right side you will see the 
altered book I am working on.
 for her patience!
If you'd like to try making an altered book,
Elizabeth has a tutorial.

Clamping on the pages.
It's not really dirty.
I just thought I'd play with the frames 
available on the camera of my Ipod.

Piling up the books!

I put wall putty and am now drying it.

And here on my daily journaling:
a quote from Mike Cherney.
"A gift that LENT offers is the time
to focus on what is really
We need to use this season to
what impedes our progress 
in the directions
that truly matter."

Joining the lovely Julia for a 
peek at desks and projects!

I love blog parties!
Won't you join us?

  1. I saw your post on the altered book post and thought I would stop by a few minutes early. Since I have never used wall putty, I have no idea how it will act or react. I suspect it will provide you with a lot of texture, though. You did an EXCELLENT job of creating that niche. It is awesome. Thanks for linking and thanks so much for playing, too. No number yet, just waiting for Julia's post.

  2. The niche in your book looks good. I have used wall putty many times, but always for walls. I think it would provide you with some sturdiness and possibly some texture. The one I use dries hard, but can still be sanded down. Happy WOYWW! Dani32

  3. Your AD book is looking fabulous that niche is perfect!! I am rather nervous to do this!! your art work is stunning, Have a blessed week, Hugs May x x x x No9

  9. OOh, AB heaven this week..I'm not behind with mine (!) but haven't done a niche, so I guess technically, I'm only up to speed because of cheating! Your desk looks wonderful. I forget to look for the new style journal, are you loving the big red cover?

  10. I love your altered book, I've always wanted to have a go at one of those.

  11. Lovely to see so many fellow 'students' getting on with their ABs, and to see the many different clamps we are all using. Not tried wall putty before so interested to see how it turns out.

  15. OH, how did the wall putty work out? That sounds interesting! What are you going to put into your niche? Looking good! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

  16. Great desk as always. You are so much further on your book than me...I am busy with Tims on line class so will come back to the book when that is done.

  17. Wednesday’s sure do come around quick! Trying again to make “All” the rounds. I like the way that niche is looking I've never tried one maybe someday.. Have a great day!

  18. I'm loving reading about everyone's altered books. Quite cool. Maybe when things slow down I'll give it a shot! :)

    Happy WOYWW! #38

  19. excellent progress on your altered book :)

  20. Your AB is looking good, the frame makes it look very vintage. There seems to be a lot of us WOYWWers making books. Dont know what wall putty is!

  25. that looks so great .. wow.. I love altering books but didn´t make a dimensional one with 3 D Elements in.... AWESOME!

  26. That is so cool... Must look into this more. Have a fabulous weekend!

  27. It's my first time visiting your blog but I'm going to have to revisit because you've got so much to see...It's so colourful too.
    Your dancing couple made me chuckle.
    I'm not sure about altering books ~ I've got so much to learn as I've been living in a cave for the last 12 years and my mojo went AWOL.
    He's now back thankfully but I want to take it slowly so that I don't frighten him away :D

  28. I came to check out your altered book - your niche looks great, the wall putty sounds interesting. Looking forward to seeing your next stage now!

  29. I'm finally getting around to seeing everyone else's AB - your niche is looking fabulous! Have you decided on a theme yet? I'm really looking forward to seeing how your next steps come along with the glue.

  30. So, this is how altered books are made! Wow, great project! I'll see what's the next step :-)
