Occasional ruminations concerning painted pages, hand bound books, the use of photos in journaling and the contemplation of various other pursuits.

Fabric and Photos

One of my books was made in a class with the Huskamp ladies at Art Unraveled.  We took the pages out of a Reader's Digest Condensed Book and covered the covers with fabric using iron-on adhesive.  Watercolor paper was also covered with fabric and fabric hinges were used to make an accordion book from all the pages.  Then collages were placed onto the pages using fabric, stamped fabric, quotations printed on fabric, and photos printed on fabric.

Some of the collages have been stitched on the sewing machine before being place on the pages. Some had items added with adhesives. Writing can be added.  Looking through the pages and feeling all the textures is wonderful.  There were so many variations displayed by the students in the class. It was truly wonderful to see the results of all those imaginations at work....or was it play?
