Altered Book 4

Here are four more pages of my altered book that are now decorated. Fairly rudimentary, but at the moment it is all experimental. To start, all the pages were roughly painted with acrylic paint.

On the left page I added a picture, the image supplied by ACF for their challenge this week. On the right-hand page, I added a paint sampler having first stamped on it some flowers that I then coloured with a silver Krylon pen.

On this left-hand page I used Tim Holtz stamps for the image and then layered it at an angle on to brown paper. For the other page, I again used a paint sampler, but this time added some distressed paper and the image on top. This was made by using a Tim Holtz mask & spraying with Adirondack Colourwash. I then stamped the french lady on top, a stamp designed by Susie Jefferson for Blade Rubber Stamps. With love was then stamped twice on each page.

simple, effective and uncluttered; just my style. It is indeed looking good.

I believe it was Leonardo da Vinci who said, "simmplicity is the ultimate sophistication"
