I have never done this before.
I really feel to be in deep water but it looks so fun to do this so I decided to have a go.
Off I went to buy some old books ( remember my habit in life, 2-3 at once) and I really found some suitable books. They have nice illustrations and pictures so I'll probably use some of them.
The book I fell in love with at once is a book (danish) describing Australia. Lovely drawings and photos inside. Accordingly to iHannas advice all my books are sewn and they do have a suitable size.
I don't quite understand.
I do not really understand what this is all about, so if anyone feel they would tell me a bit about it I would be greatful.
I think perhaps there are few rules, do what you desire are probably the main thing.
Below you can see my bargain. I paid NKR. 45.- for each book (USD 7.-) and that is real cheap for a quality book.
Break the neck of the fear.
I've seen a lot of examples of how others do this but can I? The backgrounds are my fear. Hanna Andersson (iHanna) does make such nice backgrounds and I admire her work so much. I had to reread some of her earlier posts and she had some interesting tecniques to share. I'll try some of them later on.
Strong minded I opened my box of Gesso and smeared it onto 2 pages, and waited for it to dry. My acrylics were ready and I started to paint. Inside my head I heard this woice......what to do, what to do, what to do, WHAT TO DOOOO...
I did something and... wow... it don't look bad at all.
What do you think?
One spread done.
Ok, I can see this is made by me. It's not exactly the work of a pro, but my first. I'll let myself develop for a while and we'll see then. It was fun and when I can manage to make some good backgrounds I will consentrate on the rest.
Have a nice and creative weekend everyone.
