Altered Book: Painting with Chopsticks

“I am at the moment writing a lengthy indictment against our century.
When my brain begins to reel from my literary labors,
I make an occasional cheese dip.”
John Kennedy Toole, A Confederacy of Dunces

Pages from the hardback I'm using as an art journal. 

More backgrounds from The Noticing Journal. I tend to paint a lot of backgrounds, then fill them up, then paint more, rarely finishing a page from start-to-finish all in the same time. I made a quick video showing how to paint with airbrush acrylics and a chopstick.

Super busy filming videos and preparing instructions and getting the playspace all set up for The Museum of Simple Things.

Find me tweeting snarky things at Twitter or posting in-process and quirky shots at instagram as @gypsy999.

Beautiful pages Tammy! I would love to use color so well. When I start becoming too ambitious I end up with mud... I'm watching and learning! xx

I got inspired. I made a chopstick decorated apron. While I was waiting for it to dry I ruined my brand new shirt with gesso. Sigh. But tomorrow I get to wear my new apron. Thanks for the inspiration!
