Bird Book

I have just completed this book, which has alternate perspex and chipboard pages. I covered the chipboard pages and edged them with silver Krylon ages ago but then didn't know what to do, so the book sat on a shelf for ages. Recently, there seem to have been a lot of challenges regarding birds and so these gave me my theme.

To start, I daubed some white gesso randomly onto some of the pages. Once dry, I just started stamping, using Stazon on the perspex pages and a variety of inks on the others.

I added some words, in a variety of forms, and also added some colour and embellishment in various places using marker pens. To set the whole book of, I added some ribbon in complementary colours to the jump rings holding the pages together.

When you look at the pictures below, you can see how the images change as the perspex pages are turned.
