Finally got back to working in my altered book. Some of the backgrounds had been done before our trip but I had to add focal points and final touches.
The background of this spread started with a collage of fabric scraps glued to the pages. Then I added a layer of white gesso, a floral napkin and some stamping before adding the image and sentiment circles. Have you ever tried Mod Podging fabric? It transforms into a totally different texture and is very fun to do - great way to use up scraps too.
There are portions of a napkin collaged to this background as well. The female image came from a fashion magazine with butterfly wings behind.
I like the quirkiness of this spread. There are layers of collaged book text and small images from magazines covered with scraped acrylic paints, gelatos and stamping. The robot image is from a tech magazine of my husband's with a spiky flower as a "halo." The female head is from a Stampington magazine paired with an octopus-like plant for a body.
I think I'm finally getting back in the groove of making art. I missed it this past month!
