Altered atlas

Hello fellow creatives!
For my new Mixed Media Place project, I was thinking that, like many peeps out there, I hate paperwork. Not only am I a big zero when it comes to figures, I also feel that time spending doing paperwork is stolen art time!
Maybe, just maybe, if I have a more fun environment to work in, things might be less annoying. So I gave this 1956 atlas a new life... as my file storage! Ieven made a video about the atlas transformation for you, guys!

Coucou les compagnons créatifs!
Pour mon nouveau projet Mixed Media Place, je pensais que, comme beaucoup parmi vous, je déteste la paperasserie. Non seulement moi et les chiffres ça fait deux, j'ai en plus le sentiment que le temps passer à faire de la compta est du temps créatif volé!
Peut-être que, si mon environnement de travail était plus agréable, ça m'ennuierait moins. Donc j'ai donné une nouvelle vie à cet atlas de 1956... comme porte document! J'ai même fait une vidéo de la transformation de l'atlas pour vous!

The video.    La vidéo.

If you're a book restorer, you might not like how I treat this atlas... at all! But at least, I'm giving it a second life and most of all: lots of love!
And in case you wonder, yes, it worked, I'm much more inclined to keep my paperwork up to date now, as stroking and manipulating this new storage adds to the fun :)))

Si vous êtes restaurateur de livre, ce que je fais à cet atlas doit vous rendre malade! Mais au moins, je lui donne une seconde vie et surtout: beaucoup d'amour!
Et au cas où vous vous posez la question, oui, j'adore l'utiliser. Je suis bien plus à jour avec ma compta, puisque rien que de toucher et manipuler mon nouveau dossier est très agréable :)))

There is a complete list of ingredients on the Mixed Media Place blog for you to check out!
