I have been collecting and making decorative papers for several years. I even bought a flat file drawer cabinet to try to organize the papers. Works sort of. I have taken a couple of great workshop in the last year, centered on papers. The still life above was the focus of 3 weeks inspiration for a small group I meet with.
Weeks I, II and II
I bought a childrens book and had Tom saw it to being a square - about 10 x 10.
Pages are torn out. Then I use gesso to glue and prepare several sets of pages.
These pages represent a 2 page spread (last photo)
Since I am not sewing and not showing not sure what will become of these. But it is fun.
