altered books are damn fun! you can take text out of context and use it or you can ignore the text. you can black it out or cover it with something. i just introduced paint into the mix. that isn't so fun because you have to wait for it to dry, and i'm not so good at waiting so i'm sitting here typing this.

but really, it is such a release project. everything can be random and it is just a matter of making small collages. it is a great way to use up scraps of paper and scraps of collage stuff. i mean, i finally got to use my girl condom in a project. and it fit in with the text i highlighted. too perfect.

and the satisfaction of ripping pages out so the book shuts flush is so gratifying. i love it.

and i can quit any time and carve a hidey hole in the pages, hee.

so happy. i'm arting. that's what i do. i'm an artist. therefore i art.
