I had completed these spreads in my altered book before I left for Kansas City. I haven't gotten back to much art since I've returned as I'm getting ready for a 7-day Alaska cruise with my entire family. We leave on Saturday so I'm busy packing but thought I'd post before leaving.
The left page of this spread has an image from a fashion magazine. When open, the spread (below) has flowers and stems created from fabric over a background of paints and stencils.
The background of this spread is crinkled tissue paper glued over a collage of book text. Then I scraped on acrylic paint and stenciled the white circles. I decoupaged pieces of a Jane Davenport napkin on top along with half an image from a fashion magazine (I used the other half in a previous altered book - love it). It's hard to see the sentiment which is also a decoupaged napkin. I may have to go back and outline it in white...
I hope you are enjoying my altered books as much as I am enjoying working in them. I'm itching to do more, but that will have to wait until after Alaska.
