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

Photos and Painted Pages
This example is in the Yellow Book shown in a previous post. An altered photo of an old church bell near Tubac, AZ is adhered to a page painted with very wet water colors and topped with a plastic bag while the page was drying.
One can hardly see the acrylics applied to these pages. A large photo was sliced and placed on facing pages. I am going back in with colored pencils on parts of the photo.
Acrylics again with a photo altered on the iPad app ColorSplash. These Bering Sea flowers were "painted" back into the photo with my finger, while the rest of the photo was left gray scale.
