WOYWW - Bringing out the big table!

Working on finishing up a number of requested pieces and starting on a commission.  Time to pull out the big table so I can spread out.  The first layer is always random pieces of vintage and foreign text.  For me it always gives a good foundation and adds to the depth of the background layering and I love the look of old and foreign text.  Some of it is art in itself.




I'm working on finishing up a couple of requested projects and have pulled out an art journal that I work in now and then to add some new stuff to it.  Still trying to figure out this whole art journaling thing.

  4. Oh Amy, I'm quite fond of old book pages too! I love how you're starting out with your words. I'm still figuring out art journaling too. I a bit inconsistent on how and when I work in the several I have started. Wish we were close enough to play more often. Hugs! Helen (WOYWW #85)

    1. hey Robyn! most of the pages im using on this project were sent to me but I have a collection of foreign language books that i've gotten from library sales and used books store discount bins. usually they are pretty worn out and in sad shape so i dont feel too bad about giving the pages new life in my art projects. i'm always looking for some poor sad tome that needs a rebirth as something new! its a bit of an obsession. ;)

  6. Book pages are the biz for me at the moment, and shiny magazine print! I really like the mdf, such a nice font.
