  1. i love this process! I've done it a few different times (altered books and altered page) with various age levels and it's always so engaging.

  2. I will be doing something similiar to this for my mixed media class in the spring!

  3. Hi Gabriela! I love too, it’s so various and full of surprise, there is so many exciting features: poetry, drawing, imaginations, links between words and imagines… I think everyone should try it!Thanks for your comment!

  4. great! You’ll show me your work when will be ready!!

  5. questo mi è piaciuto davvero! Ah, l'arte delle parole!

  6. Fabulous! I am doing a storytelling unit with my 2nd graders and I must adapt this!!! (a simplified version of course!)

  7. wow!! I’m curious to see your works with children, show me your adaptation for kids, I think everyone could do this! thanks for your comment!

  8. Do you know the art of Natalie Czech? http://www.natalieczech.de/arbeiten/index.php

  9. Thanks for the suggestion! I’m very glad to know her work!

  10. Great stuff. Check out a NZ artist who has created a name for herself in the art world, painting Maori designs on newspaper, leaving some text exposed. Tracey Tawhiao. Worth googling. I've tried her approach in class. http://gretchenbuwalda.blogspot.co.nz/search/label/maori%20design

  11. One more thing Miriam, what is the fabulous black pen you are using in your tutorial? Which by the way is excellent.

  12. It’s a brush pen: have a look on PENTEL GFKP JAPAN, refillable with black ink cartridge. the tip is like a paintbrush… it’s fantastic!

  13. May I ask permission to use one of these pictures in a teaching resource I am creating? I would like to include at least one picture from above with a link to this page so students could find out more and be inspired. This is incredible!
