Sometimes when playing with paints, inks and drawing, it is good to
get away from a blank white page. Thinking about that, I found a scruffy
old book in the charity shop, "The Poetical Works of John Keats". It came
to mind that not only would it give a good base to work on, but might also
provide inspirational prompts to create the pages.
I have started stitching groups of pages together to give them more strength to
take the paint, sometimes adding beads.
A bit of a problem though.........keep getting distracted reading the verse!
Always have that guilty feeling "spoiling" a book, but this one is very
much past it's best so that's fine.
It will be an ongoing project, so expect to see how it's going from time to time.
Probably involving gesso.........sigh :(
Bye for now, P.
