Mixed Media Monday - Believe


Thus week's theme at Mixed Media Monday is "Believe" and I thought I would post a scan of an altered book spread I did quite some time ago - I think it fits well with the theme!

This page is a favourite napkin image adhered onto a page that has been coloured with water soluble oil pastels. I love the way the text peeks through. The metal embossing was done with a stylus. A very simple spread.

Looking through my old scans I have realized it is absolutely ages since I did any altered books so I think I might just start again straight away. I love the way working with existing book pages takes you straight past the blank page syndrome!

What a lovely spread, Debbi, I think that's such a good point about losing the white page thing, in an altered book. Another diversion I've found is to make my books with the little binder I bought a while back, I don't feel so precious about them if I've made it myself and haven't spent a fortune on it :-) Sort of expendable.

What a wonderfully mysterious spread. As you said, I love the way the text peers from the pages in the most interesting way. I was just thinking about you as I was flipping through a magazine and gazing upon your gorgeous artwork! Congratulations!
