I’ve been working on my first altered book 🙂
We’re down to the last 2 – 3 weeks of the year with my course and it’s all happening.
As I said, I’ve been working on an altered book…something for my course… and to be honest it’s not something I would choose to do for myself, simply because I consider books a treasure and not something I would ‘alter’….often…However…. I’ve been inspired by the beautiful work of Justin Rowe. His work is elegant and timeless…and amazing… at least the ones I have seen…and did I say I’m inspired? 😀
So after being inspired, this is my effort. It is titled ‘Treasure Books’.
The book itself IS Treasure Island… simply because it has treasure in the title. It had to relate.
While this was a very mental exercise to begin with, I must say I enjoyed creating a new treasure from an old one.
Every part of this book sculpture is paper, except for a few little treasure beads 🙂
