Altered Book

I've joined an Altered Book round robin through my online group AAWA. I'm in a group with three other artists and we have one month to work in each of the books and to do at least 3 spreads. The initial swapping is due April 15th and I just finished my first spread in my own book. I chose "Secret Garden" so this spread focuses on flowers.

I first watercolored the book pages with green and then adhered pictures of pink flowers from a magazine, covered with a thin coat of gesso. I overstamped with gesso and black ink, added torn pieces of old wallpaper to the corners and attached the vellum quote, flowers and "bloom" scalloped circle, and the wispy beaded fiber.
