Apple Altered Book 1

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.

Yesterday, Zane asked me to put together a graphic for the cover of a lenten devotional booklet he is publishing for the congregation. So, my art yesterday was mainly working on this.

Apple a Day

This week I will be going to my first altered book class. I am considering "an apple a day" as my focus, but I am leaving myself open to see what intuitive creative ideas come my way when I get to the class. Here are two apple-a-day pix I worked on tonight to get the juices flowing.

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.

Who me? These doodles are not that creative, but they do make you think about doing something with a line that you did not create. This was pretty much a continuous line drawing.

Off and on, Connie and I have collaborated on collage pieces. Here is one which Connie created and sent it to me for enhancement. Here is the result.

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.
