Altered Books Workshop Scrapbooking and More with Found Objects

From the FIRST modern altered book: A Humument by Tom Phillips

Before You Begin: Look for hardbacks or board books. Avoid paperbacks. Make sure binding is not broken or loose. To make room for additions, “thin out” your book by ripping out every 5th page. To support additions, glue 2 or more pages together using gel medium or a glue stick and brayer. Make sure not to use originals of photos!
