(Blogger teases me too! First I was not able to load the pics to blogger, but now it seems to work again...)
This is the AB I´m making in Elizabeth´s Altered Book Class.
I´ve not finished the niche nor the front page - I have to make some more thinking with them :) Althoug the Muse for the niche is ready and working well!
´cause my theme deals with wings, my "glue tags" are wing shaped. In the glue experiment I used Pritt´s Original glue stick, which worked fine. It glues well and is immediately dry. I also like the all purpose PVA glue. It wasn´t so wet as I feared. Maybe partly because I have lost the cap and use an aluminium folio on top of it :) We don´t have Elmer´s glue here, but Eri Keeper is well known, and I guess it´s almost the same stuff.
The third "glue" was decoupage lacquer, ´cause I don´t have gel medium. That was far too wet! Althoug it glues well. The last pages I glued together with gesso. Also that took quite a long time to dry. But all my "glues" worked well and didn´t cause wrinkles! ...well, the lacquer a bit...
This is my gesso spread. I really like playing with gesso! It was a good medium to glue the feathers to the page. There is also an used tea bag.
My homework. I noticed that I have the same alphabet stencil as in the link :) I only coloured from the wrong side, so I got the alphabets right way to my page. And I used the Inktence pencils, so I had no problems to get the colour to stick to the page - only problem was, that I was about to glue the whole paper to the page :D So I continued with an instant image transfer method: I spread the glue/water mixture to an ink jet print (on the print side), put that to the page (the print side towards the page) and took it away before the glue dried. The face and butterfly are tranferred with that method. Then I printed the instructions, glued them to the page and added some paper tapes.
Finally the PVA resist experiment. I made it first to the pages I have ripped off the book. I wanted to see, how the different colours works with the glue... and then I draw a wing also in the book. Now I´m waiting the glue to dry...
