This is the last submission for the Altered Book Relay, Colors. The theme is India and the colors are Pink, Yellow and Orange. The whole book is a big, chunky burst of color. I’ll be packing it up and sending it to Connecticut today. I will get my own book back, Lime and Plum, in a month or so. These relay submissions helps keep me working to a deadline and an assignment. All the artists in the group has produced quite a body of work over the years.
These images are from a severly water damaged book called Famous Pictures I found in a local antique store. The book is over 100 years old, but the paper that survived is in pretty good shape and the images suit my collage style. They find their way to Altered Books, Cards, Art Journals, Calligraphy Projects and my Stash, waiting their turn to audition. Sometimes just looking through them inspires an idea.
