Back in March, I promised to send photos of the altered book I started months ago.
Earth, Water, Fire and Air ~ what you see below are the Earth pages. The book is made from an altered child’s board book, with stamping, collage, painting, chalk, and more. The tabs on the right are part of the original board book; they’ve been perfect for labeling each page. The photo of St. Francis was taken in the garden of a place I stayed near Asheville, NC.
The Water, Fire and Air pages are almost complete, so eventually you’ll find those here as well. In the meantime, backed-up custom orders absorb my time.
If you have made altered books, please leave a comment with a link. I’d like to see your work!
Spectacular. I’ve made altered books but they pale in comparison to your work of art. Thanks for the inspiration
Thanks for your comment, Judith. It’s all experimental for me. There are many ideas and techniques I’d like to try . . . maybe in the new year.
I am inspired as well. I’ve collected about a half dozen childrens board books for this reason but have yet to try this. Your colors, as usual, as gorgeous, and you have such a knack (talent) for form. Beautiful. Patsye
