|Trialling various new techniques in this altered book|
In my spare time over the last few days I have been experimenting with various techniques that I plant to use when on holiday for an 'altered book journal'. By rights this should be posted on my Journaling Blog, but on that I like to give guidance as to how to achieve similar results, and this post is actually to demo to myself a new scanner. So here goes - many different techniques were used here, though I think the one I am most pleased with is the map at the bottom: scanned in the new scanner then printed on paper I had dyed myself using old tea-bags. The map is much clearer that way than antiquing it afterwards. Or at least I think so!
