I glued two sheet of tissue paper together and then painted them to get the above pages. Showing is the back page of the well book with leaf cutouts. The pages are currently unbound. I am not sure how to bind them as waxed linen might make the pages tear. But then again it might not.
The front with just one leaf cutout. There are two books of different sizes. They are in process. The pages feel like cloth once they are glued and painted.
For the larger book I cut out circles through the pages so you can see through the colors. As if looking down a well, smile.
Am not sure if I want words on these pages.
I love the way the tissue turns out all wrinkled. I used acrylic paints and also powdered Pearl Ex pigments.
I am also working on the My Authentic Voice booklet. The raised letters were made with glue.
Here is one of the inside pages. My voice is quiet is on the left. My baby voice awakens is on the right. The photo transfer on the bottom left is the photo from which I made the sketch on the right a few years ago.
