This week’s Get Messy has been bittersweet as it’s the last one from this Season and I will really miss this and I will most certainly be continuing to use my altered book for long after. The first page this week has a quote that really spoke to me this week and it contains a little note to myself to remind me of some important things to remind myself. My next page is inspired by the lovely Julia and a technique… Read more »

Lots of lovely words this week in my altered book for Get Messy this week. Words which we hold dear, words which have more meaning attached because we let them.

My book is actually a book of poems which makes finding found poems pretty easy as there are some great words in there already so it’s not hard make a new one from it. I cut out my second poem using a scalpel to… Read more »

We’re getting stuck into our altered books this week with the Get Messy Prompts as it’s been very exciting to actually get started into this project for real. It’s been very hard to wait until the Season began as I was lucky enough to be able to put forward a couple of prompts to use in this season and Caylee and Lauren were kind enough to include some. As we’re just getting started I kept the pages simple. As my… Read more »
