The Altered Fat Book of Fairies

think it is a fat book. Please correct me if I am wrong. After seeing a fat book on the Altered Books Yahoo group I realized my book was fat.Well, this is what I consider a really altered book even though it would be tip-ins and was finished as an entirely new book. Long story! The reason I say it is truly an altered book is that I didn't work with any of my previous paintings . I used much material from magazines, altering the images with paint, muuuuuuch glitter, the krylon gold leaf pen, many trinkets and jewelry my friend Beth gave to me. The initial plan was to use only magazine stuff and Beth's jewelry but I ended using some fairy cards and some beautiful paper that reminds me of fabric. I used it to decoupage the cover and the niche.
