Foundation



I was inspired to work in a board book today for something different. I started by gluing down random scraps of text from old books. I then brushed on several colors until I was pleased with the background.

I took out this image of my Grandmother, her sisters and parents to use. Wasn't sure what the page would become but wanted to use it none the less.



Here are a couple of close ups of each side.

I LOVE using old photos of my family, but I especially love the way this looks with that "foundation" bit right below it. And I like the wash of paint so you can still see some words and interest going on underneath.

It's been too long since I've been to your blog. I'm sure glad I came by tonight, since you KNOW how much I love houses and this one is perfect with its torn paper windows and hand painted tree and grass. What a wonderful spread.

This is so cool. I wish I could work in this art form but I am so bad at it!
