Tales


Here are the first few pages of an altered scrapbook that I started on my trip. Just before leaving I received my Spare Parts Vol. 2 from Anahata. It was fun to break into that on my trip and use some of her goodies. I also used some wonderful things that I received from the ephemera swap, which, by the way, will be mailed out in the next couple of days:) I collected a lot of found objects that I've attached here and there throughout. I started this book the night we were having a really hard time with my son adjusting to his new surroundings. He is autistic (see other blog) and we weren't sure what to expect. I wanted to let out some of the emotions and frustrations I was having into my art. At that time I thought it may be a "curio" book of sorts into him and his unique perpective. Still not sure where I'm going with that, but I had fun nonetheless and here it is!

I really like these pages! I esp like the large scale and textural aspects of them, and the space in between :)
