"But words are things,
and a small drop of ink,
falling like dew upon a thought,
produces that which makes thousands,
perhaps millions, think."
The first glimpse within a new book that I'm altering! The book is 10" wide x 12" tall, a wonderfully vast 20" x 12" when open. I'm calling the project "tekenfilm" because of the cartoonish illustrations in this children's book.
A large canvas provides a sense of possibility! These soft blue, vivid orange and yellow pages were made with ephemera, cardstock, maps and old books. I used fluid matte medium to thin the fluid acrylics for the base layers. The orange was applied with a toothbrush! This may be phase one of this page; might journal or add a quote in the future. But for now, I love the way it came out.
