Altered book tutorial and Crafty Blogger Links

Back in this post I did a project from the book Collage Playground: A Fresh Approach to Creating Mixed-Media Art that used a "block out" technique.

Well over at this post at Memory Makers there is a full download of a design tutorial that uses this technique and incorporates it into a great altered page. Pop on over to download the full PDF file! You'll love it. Thanks Julie for sharing this great post.
