New pages from altered book/sketchbook
It's all about lizards and bits about Menorca, and is self explanatory really.
The cover is photocopied information about lizards in different sized text, sewn together and gesso'd. It also has a smudge of ochre paint, but we'll leave that for now!
Left. The lizard collagraph on fabric, and acrylic paints with lizard cut-out.
Below: a photocopy of Menorca, stuck in and extended roughly with acrylics.
Don't forget, the secret for me with these books is not to fill them with beautiful finished pieces, but just to put everything in them that comes to mind.
