Gosh - it has been a while since I posted anything! Pretty slack, huh?
Last Saturday, as part of my birthday gift from Mum, I went to a workshop at Pataka Museum in Porirua to get some insight into altering old books.
I had a great time! The workshop was presented by two young artists and I have yet to finish the book but it's one of those projects that you can do in bits and pieces.
This is the book that I started with:
And this is a page I started before I remembered to take a photo:
It now looks like this:
Here are a couple more that I have done:
I used lots of paint and distress inks, masks and additional images. It took a couple of days to get the ink stains off my fingers, lol.
I'm going back tomorrow for a second workshop. This time we will "re-make" a book using the book original cover and making "new" pages for it with a variety of card and paper stocks.
Watch this space for the results :)
