I finished another collage using paper back books over the weekend, like the one I posted previously: By The Book
Except this time, I included these “other materials”: a postage stamp, text, images from an old book on Botany, image of a man from a hardback book cover on yoga for women, hand stitching, gauze-like material from the binding of a hardback book and some of my own Gelli-plate prints!
I found this mosaic format a fun challenge. I tried to balance color, texture, line and shape without making it too busy. I also tried to create a story with a little mystery.
This style is a bit of a stretch for me… but I’m enjoying the process!
I’d love to hear what you think!
