Finished working on a new book this afternoon. I will be adding it to my Etsy shop soon. While I was downloading the pictures for this post, I realized I didn’t have a full view of one side of the piece, so I need to do that before I can add it to Etsy.
This book is 18″ long when open accordion style, 4″ high and 4″ in depth. The book is made with digital prints on all sorts of surfaces. Each photo of the pages has a description of the materials from each page.
I started out with card stock squares and worked the composition on the individual squares using gel medium instead of glue to attach the composition to the base pages and build up the surace. Some pieces are sewn together, some wrapped with wire as they are assembled for each composition. attach them to the square before. As I put the pages together, 2 holes were punched in each side and then tied with hemp or wire to attach them.
Some of the materials used:
Digital prints on the following surfaces: organdy, watercolor paper, recycled beverage cans, metallic crinkle paper, hand made paper, hand made skin, tyvec, lutradur, canvas, metal mesh, copper mesh and velum.
Hemp, twigs, wire, dyed cheesecloth, dyed canvas, dyed burlap, beads, recycled quilt pieces and embroidery thread
