Altered Book Pages

This week I did my first demo at the store where I work part time... playing with altered book pages.

Here's a bit of what I shared:
 Sunflower with inked die cut leaves and a torn circle center


 Birds made with die cut tinted images, with wings curled. I got my inspiration for the birds here.

Leaves from crumpled and tinted book pages

Book page feathers, inspired by this tutorial. Note lighter weight book pages work the best.

My friend Cheryl was there and took some pictures which she shared on her blog. O.o


Sharing with my friends at Paint Party Friday! Do check out what some of the other artists have been creating this week.

Well I just love all of these, actually I am imagining a room decorated with them all hanging from the ceiling and the windows. Wouldn't that be fantastic?

There is something about book pages that I just like - probably one of the reasons why I like to include them in my paintings as well. I love your birds, they are so cute, but all the other projects are so beautiful as well.
