A few more accordion books using Arches lightweight printmaking paper. This time I painted the paper on both sides, then collaged on an old photo and pictures from an old dictionary. The theme here is "By the Sea."
Free-form waves. I painted directly on a sheet of freezer paper to use as a "plate" and then I pressed the arches paper onto the paint making a monoprint. I wont collage anything onto this, but may add words.
I painted the arches paper with brush and sponge. Collaged on dictionary pictures and bits of origami paper. Rubber stamp. Birds being the theme.
This one used an old label, an old photo aged even more using sandpaper, paper from an old ledger written in the 1890's. Just an old fashioned theme though I suppose it could also be mothers.
You may or may not recall that I am sloooowly working on a sketch book in sections. To be bound later. The first two sections include a memorial to friends and relations who have died and self-portraits. The photo is blurry as my camera was out in the car and moisture got in. Well, I am now working on the third sketchbook section. The figures are from a self-cut stencil. The moons too. The theme is moving on or stepping out or something like that. The page below is not finished.
