Altered Book in Progress

Hello all

I have been attending a brilliant mixed media class on Mondays as i needed to just have a day of doing art stuff for myself as i was getting edgy and had hit a brick wall as far as my art was concerned .

As well as learning new techniques i have also made some great new friends and we all splodge paint around eat naughty food and laugh a lot which is the best art therapy in the world as far as im concerned.

I am working on an Altered Book and my theme for it is Things with Wings .

So here are a few pics to let you see how im getting on with it.

The first pic shows the book after i have glued pages together and then used paints and inks to add some colour

The next pic shows how i have built up the depth of the pages using more inks and paints using Rubber Stamps and Stencils.

And finally heres the first spread i have done and its almost finished and its supposed to represent Bingo Wings. It just needs a bit more doing to it but i will leave it for now until i decide what to add.

So as you can see i am having a fabby time and will keep you all up to date with how the book is getting along.

Smiles Rob xxx
