Altered Book Page June 20, 2010


I was so pleased with how this altered book page turned out!  I was having no luck with gel medium transfers, so I experimented with packing tape and came up with this altered book page created in a hardbound world atlas I found in the local thrift store.  If you would like to try packing tape transfers try this quick tutorial

i hope this doesn’t show up twice! I thought I blogged this all ready, anyway….This is my first attempt to paint flowers…I used colored pencil, watercolors and caran de ache water soluble crayons. I did this painting in a workshop by talented artist Sol Santiago who I met at the amazing Ning group Hands and Heart, created by Monica Zuniga.

This was inspired by Artist Traci Bautista. I love her style and use of color and freedom! I can’t wait to take a workshop from her when i can afford it someday!
