Mixed Media Art Questions for Milliande


Hi Milliande,
I found your video on You Tube about the altered book love shrine. I really loved the outcome of your project.
I was wondering what you used on the inside of the book covers for the box frame? I assume you used the same thing for the box frame and the little box on the inside that hold the mirror?
anyway, I'm hoping you can help me with this.
I really love your site and your tutorials. You have inspired me to work on my own art journals!

Thanks so much,

Mixed Media Art Questions for Milliande

Here a link to the Love Shrine video which includes close up photos that might show it better :-)
http://www.milliande.com/Altered-Books-Love-Shrine.html

I did this shrine in a class with Michael DeMeng where we literally used whatever we had to hand to make it fit our junk yard finds ..

So if I remember rightly part of the book structure was made using a cut down broom handle ...sawed into to small pillar like pieces..and the outside frame structure was made with mountboard pieces cut to size and glued to that with strong E3000 glue

I like creating structures for box like frames with heavy grade mountboard..as it is lightweight, still retains a certain amount of flexibility that lets me mold it to the outer altered book frame yet remains relatively stable when glued together to some support pillars ..which can either be round shaped or square shaped pieces that are fixing the height of the box on my altered book

I am hoping to do a video of making one of my altered books soon ..so stay tuned

hope this helps
