As you know we are doing an Altered Book Round Robin and each meeting we swap books so we can each work in each others book. The pages below I made for Ro's book. Ro's theme is Africa (and at first I was quite daunted. But once I got going things just flowed.)
Ro loves colour!!!!! So I thought a colourful elephant would be perfect for her book. I have a lovely wooden elephant whom inspired the spread below for Ro. I am loving this naive style of painting.
This is the full two page spread. I left a little of the wording from the book showing through.
This is the second spread I did for Ro's book. It has more of an African feel. I really enjoyed doing a little collage on these pages and loved the images of the young African boys singing.
Our group doesnt meet again until early May and in the meantime I will be working in my friend Dots book. Another one who loves colour, so this will be FUN.
Meanwhile I am doing a shibori workshop with Glennis Dolce, so Ishould have a few new fabrics to share with you and include in my art. Dyeing day tomorrow!
Meanwhile..... IMMERSE YOURSELF IN COLOUR....it will make you happy!
