Videos: Altered Baby Book Art Journal

I've been thinking of trying to create an altered book for a looooong time. But I'd always start in on my regular art journals or get distracted by other projects. Then a few weeks ago I was at the library with my daughter and I saw this baby board book in the discard pile. At first I picked it up to read to my girls. And though it's a sweet book, I decided to transform it into an art journal. Here are two quick, off the cuff videos (I'm learning to just start filming and not be shy!) that share the process of beginning this altered book.
