I bought these blank board books ages ago to make into memory books...but got distracted by the mixed media community :D
So for this weeks challenge I thought I'd alter one to use as an art journal...
No subject in mind, I painted the cover with Deep Turquoise acrylic, and sponged over with Rose Madder.
A piece of white muslin, dipped in my painty water, and a seriously distressed book page form the next layer...
on which I circled some words that would set the tone for the art within: Ghost, wintertime, forgotten, black, shriek and belonged.
A few more pretty images I got from June Mac's Treasure bags, distressed...
and some metal charms
Can't wait to make some seriously heavy "dark love" art in this book.
Hmmm....might write and illustrate a poem???
Getting messy can be so inspirational :D
Enjoy :D XXX
