Altered Books

Slowly but surely the pages in my books are getting covered with a mixture of gesso and various colouring mediums.


Today I discovered the fun you can have with an old square rubber/eraser. I work on a number of books at a time so paint can be passed backwards and forwards between the different pages.


As the gesso dries the original images often re-emerge adding an extra dimension.


Once all the pages are covered I shall start to distress the pages, removing, stitching and adding whatever catches my eye.
