Altered Book In Progress
Some time ago I saw purse made by someone that had fabric added to a picture to pop it out in 3D. I really liked it, but wanted to put my own twist on it. I have added both paint and colored pencils as well as fabric to these. It is just a start, but I like it. I will add some more to them, and do more as well. I am doing a book for a friend of mine that loved the mermaid book I made for a friend last fall. The book has a middle east and African slant, (she is Ethiopian and loves dancing) but she loves preRaphaelite art, so some of those will be added too. I have also added pearls and gold, and have a wonderful pic to add goldleaf to around her halo. I am having alot of fun! You know, that is what art should be...fun!
