My Journeys in Colored Pencil ... And Other Mediums
Friday, January 24, 2014
This week I've decided to try my hand at book sculpture again but this time, taking it to the next level. I took my Great Aunt Helen Bidwell's old Toll House Cookbook turned it into a piece of artwork in homage to her. I searched on line for examples of repurposed books and how to fold and glue paper flowers. First I folded the pages in the book as I wanted them to be presented then I cut pages from another book to use for the flowers and leaves. Before cutting, I took some of the pages and watercolored them by hand and let them dry. After they were dry, I cut out the leave patterns and put the flowers together. It took almost two days to create this book but what fun and a great project for a cold winter week.
