Altered book pages
Just a couple more pages from my book. I think the last two books I've worked on in our ABRR have been influencing my use of colour. These pages appear quite toned down to the usual, things will change however, as I can let my hair down on my current book.
The top pages have writing from a Chinese newspaper on them. I have no idea what the text says, I just love the letters, so if anyone can read this, please don't be offended if it doesn't make sense or says something it shouldn't.
The backgrounds to the bottom pages were made by tearing up strips of the yellow pages phone book, then sticking them down at random. When the glue's dry you use sticky tape to stick down and pull off some of the paper, this gives a dappled effect when you paint a thin wash over the top, it's quite a good background when you use lots of layers.
