Rule 43

When working outside, bring anything that is water absorbent inside when you have finished. Or, at the very least, don't forget that the said water absorbent stuff is outside... That way, unexpected thunderstorms don't drench the three (three...sigh...) altered books you had got half way through prepping. Everything else survived...I remembered to take the dolls inside much earlier...but those books will never be the same. Actually, I don't think they'll ever dry out, either... Oh well. Back to the drawing board, or, in this case, the charity shop...just as well there's a constant supply of books for altering.

I bought a copy of Winnie the Pooh to alter, a new book, but I don't know that I have the heart to do it... what might be interesting is to take quotations from it, and use them in altered books. My altered books tend to be paintings, rather than collages, and abstracts, to boot...wonder how that'll work...

Drat! Guess the clouds got to do some altering of their own. Thanks for the reminder Marion...

How awful for you, perhaps you could pulp the ruined paper and create something with that, so all is not lost.
