I found this lovely old Readers Digest book a few years ago, and decided to make it an altered book.

It has at least 50 articles within it that somehow pertain to the title theme of "The Art of Living", and most of these are 2-3 page spreads. So over time, I've been having Craftster artists take the book, pick an article title as a theme, and decorate that spread as they see fit, leaving at least the title showing. There's still much to be done, but I'll share the creations as I receive them!

In the order completed...
