Alter This!
Take this book and#133;remake it! Introducing the first guide that not only teaches kids the basics of altered art, but is the very material for creating those personal pieces. That's because this volume, along with dozens of others, is an art project just waiting to happen. With irreverent text and beautiful photography#151;and techniques such as stitching, image transferring, and cutting#151; Alter This! shows children how to turn telephone, picture, and even those boring grammar books into something exciting. Budding artists will decorate pages with collage, paint, stamps, pockets, and pop ups, and transform entire tomes into shadow boxes, picture frames, purses, or tools for passing notes in the hallway. Kids will want to own this book#133;and make it their own, too!
