This is an artist's blog with drawings and photographs as well as journal entries. Updated almost daily, I am a mixed media artist who works in fibers and beads, paper and paint, alcohol ink markers and bookmaking, prose and poetry.
These are the first few pages from my latest hand made book. I learned the techniques in a workshop at Be Creative taught by debra-lynn may. The title of the workshop was something like beyond the edges. We worked for awhile on adding the background to the paper for the book using dye spritzers, adding and subtracting colour until we were satisfied. After the papers dried the most exciting part began! We did things to the edges!!! In my first photo you can see one edge has houses added, one has tags and one has swirly shapes.
My first favourite thing was houses.
Then crows and then dogs - you don't see the dogs in this photo, but you will in later posts!
