Decorated papers and Altered book workshop
Above are some paper packs that I'm now selling on my Etsy store . The top image is the pack, the second photo shows the hand decorated papers, each pack is slightly different as the papers are hand decorated. The third image shows laser prints of my art and papers.
These are photos from my latest altered book workshop, last weekend.
This was Patsy's third workshop, she's so prolific with her art. This is the cover of her Asian themed book. The little figures are painted plaster. Patsy has an exhibition of her magnificent textile pictures, fabulous bags and altered books on December the 8th and 9th at the Waratah Room in St Michaels Church Hall, in Collins street Melbourne. It will be well worth a visit.
Sue's another one who's returned, this was her second workshop, her work's so vibrant. It's a real colour explosion.
This was the first time Sue had tried her hand at altered books and she did very well indeed. I hope to see her again at our Thursday night get togethers.
Lucy's a scrap booker so she was familiar with some of the materials, but I think the tea bags, serviettes and party umbrellas took her by surprise, I'm sure she thinks I'm quite mad using some of the things I collect.
Joy was also a new comer to the workshop, but she had met up with altered books before, not quite like the way I teach though. Recycling's the name of the game in my workshops, it's amazing what you can use to create such wonderful, original art, as their books reflect. Well done ladies.
