a couple of photos taken early this morning in my work room........sunlight & shadows instead of dreariness & rain.
the doll & her dress were cut from fabric & glued onto cardboard.
& some more pages from the 365 creative challenge........from my altered book.....
the bird, at the bottom & the cows are made from maps , not sure who the artists are.......very clever use of paper,......there are lots of little cuts in the bird.

trying something different .......i had an old bread board which i painted roughly with gesso.......
sanded some off when it was dry.......did a fairly quick sketch on it with water soluble crayons, rubbed with my fingers in some places to smudge it, added some water in other bits & then sanded it roughly to give an aged look. if you click onto the photo you will see the detail of this process.

the next page i added some collage to a picture from the book & more pen.
the one with the collage clock has text highlighted with gel pen, a freehand grid drawn & coloured with pitt pens.
i used different shades of grey & black pitt pens in the negative space to highlight the simple line drawing of birds.
i have been going through my magazine collection........de-cluttering & recycling ........or just making space for a few new ones!
every time i flick through a magazine i see images that i can piece together.......".every picture tells a story"......so the saying goes.
