Yay! It’s Friday. I have done a lot of art today which makes me VERY happy! I did a collage demo yesterday and it got me all fired up to work. I worked on my large canvas today as well as starting a new altered book. I don’t think the canvas is ready for prime time yet, though maybe that’s not true. Many people post their works of art as they progress. I’m not sure – it is not a thing of beauty yet! I thought I would post the first two page spread of my new altered book. I started by gluing down magazine scraps and then pulling them off. I like the rough surface and remnant that gets left behind. I added some scraps of tissue paper, some glazing and some crayon. It was a lot of fun to put together and a great release. I should have maybe have done that before I worked on the canvas to get warmed up – but I did the opposite. Once I got to a point on my canvas where I wanted to stop and give it more thought, I wasn’t ready to stop making art. So, that’s when I grabbed a book I had gotten specifically to turn into an altered book. I haven’t finished with this spread, but it was a good start.
It’s a gorgeous day here in New England and I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
