I am taking an altered book classes through the local school district community education program. My book is titled "Apple a Day. " Here is the beginning of the book. The book cover (pix 1) is a start. I have not added the title yet. Pix 2 is the inside cover spread. I made these from the original with the white background below. Pix 3 is an apple collage. I am not sure how I will use it yet, but look for it later in the book.

Part of collage work is paper prep. Here is one I did last night. Printed randomly with the ridged side of a Starbucks cup sleeve. Then I negatively painted around the area to create a large shape. I don't know how I will use this, but it will fit in somewhere. More intuitive art.

Continuing my colored pencil sketches in the evening. Last night I experimented with rubbings. I used rubber bands, cut up credit card and a coaster. Not a finished work of art, but an experiment with what can happen when you just DO SOMETHING - getting you art mind in gear with intuition. After I scanned it, I used Photoshop to create a layer on top. This is a process remember. We will see where it will take me.
