I have been thinking about doing a Vivian Bonder Online journal workshop for a while now, and while i haven't quite made it there yet, i thought i would have a go at a Dig Deep Challenge that Vivian has running over on her blog at the moment.
As you have probably gathered the challenge is your take on "Honesty".......
this is what i started with, eventually they will all go back between the covers that i pulled them out of!!
As i have mentioned before i have some old encyclopedia Britanicca's that i want to play around with for a few different projects. This being one of them.
I have pulled apart the inners, taken off the covers (which is what i want to play with next). I sewed about 10 or so pages together and used this as my base. I have then built up layers of paint, ink and masking tape. i hand drew "honesty" and coloured in with water colour pencils and oil pastels.
Some stray rubons and letter stickers and some gorgeous old lace that i found at the op shop were added as well as some black kindy glitz and staples to anchor. I must say i am fairly pleased with the outcome.
I'm looking forward to the next challenge and have enjoyed doing something for ME, it certainly gets the creative juices flowing and the old mind ticking over :0)
Hope you're having a happy day
