Overview

Altered! Art Projects is a must-have collection of altered art featuring unique and trendy ideas. The term “altered art” conjures up different visions and ideas for every individual. Artists seem to be especially adept at finding their own characteristic meaning for anything they choose to give this name. Altered art is something that has changed from the original concept, creating something new and different. Projects featured in this book include birdhouses, shadowboxes, framed collages, scrapbook pages and much more. A simple canvas or photo can undergo complete metamorphosis, just like a caterpillar becoming a butterfly. Transition using distress, texture, collage, and embellishments; enclose in a frame or shadowbox and you have created altered art! It is no longer a simple canvas or photo, but your own unique creation. The piece has not only changed, but also become more meaningful—this is an artist’s gift.
