It was wonderful to be asked to participate in The Sketchbook Challenge book. Since my work starts with digital images, all the textures and elements in my Forest Book 2 piece featured in the book are digitals on some type of alternative surfaces. Elements is the chapter that my work is in.
In this image you can see a composition using digitally printed watercolor paper and encaustic on the right. On the left the page is comprised of digital prints on recycled beverage cans strung on thin hemp and crocheted together before attaching it to the page.
The page on the right is digitally needlepoint canvas with digital prints on lutradur heat distressed and attached to the canvas. The lutradur has been torn and layered with wire and beads and a border of beads runs around the lutradur composition. On the left is a mixture of textured elements and a digital print on tyvek. The tyvek is cut into small pieces and then melted to stack with wire and twigs.
This part of the sketchbook contains the images and information from my photoshop files. This is about the watercolor paper prints that were torn and assembled with encaustic in the first picture of my Forest Book 2.
