Progress on my Altered Book and Other Art Ideas
I am starting to look at other surfaces to work with, such as canvas board, Crystal Light canisters (would make great makeup brush or paint brush holders, among other things...)a cardboard container that is made similar to a hatbox but much smaller, and basically anything that will adapt well to paint and/or the "decoupage" , or altered art technique. I think the Crystal Light canisters will be very useful around the house, and it's a great way to recycle them! Who knows, I might even sell one or two, depending on how well they turn out!
I have also started writing some short poetry or prose to add to my book. This is working well with the "emotions" theme I have going with this one. I have a feeling that the majority of my work on these will deal with emotions, sort of like art therapy or a diary type book. I write them in "notepad", and then print them out on either colored or white cardstock. Some of it I mount on cardboard and then glue into the book, to add a 3D aspect.
Any suggestions or comments are welcome, so feel free to leave comments, good or bad and I will explaore any ideas you have for me and post the results here. Until later, here is my email to contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
