Those who have followed my blog for awhile might have noticed that I tend to work on multiple projects at the same time. Many projects. Too many projects? I find that I work best when I have more then one piece at a time going. Moving back and forth between pieces keeps my creative juices flowing. The downside is that sometimes projects end up incomplete and unfinished. I have recently revisited a piece that I have not worked on since the end of 2007. It was meant to be a mixed media book called Roughcast. Some of you may remember some of the pages that I posted on this blog in 2007. I had big plans for this book, expecting to create additional pages and having dreamed up a complicated binding technique that never came to life. I recently decided to simplify things, forego the book structure completely, and keep the pages as individual pieces. And now, Roughcast is complete.
Sold. Thank you!
The flip-side of every page is made from altered paper, each of which is numbered.
The pieces measure 9 1/4" x 4 1/4" each. Several have fold outs attached. Ingredients include a wide variety of materials such as watercolor paper, altered paper, handmade paper, bookboard, photographs, found ephemera, acrylic paint, wax pastels, rub on letters, image transfers, varnish, found metal objects, leaf, pigment ink, dye ink, colored pencil, masking tape, brads, linen thread, gesso, etc. Click images to enlarge.
