Altered Books [H of A and SSAJ]

Way back in 2012 I sorted some books for charity and this one [History of Art - Impressionism] was among them. The spine was disintegrating and not good enough to give away so I thought I would use it for art work. The idea was to be inspired by the art in it, although this didn't always work. The book is not finished but I keep having a dabble in it.


Another book I started altering in 2014 was a Somerset Studio art journal calendar from 2003. I'm just using one side and leaving the original art work on the other side. I've just taken photos of my art work this time.

Real plants under plastic


This one was a digital painting which I printed then cut up.

Cactus and Mess

When I go on holiday I usually move the plants out of the conservatory because it can get very hot.  I forgot this time and had a few casualties including this cactus. I thought cactus like it hot?

My untidy room to show you that I have been creating, I'm making another quiet book.

Abstract Doodle

Digitally painted on my tablet, just messing about with the brushes with no theme in mind but I quite like the result.
I thought I would join in with Paint Party Friday, check here for more entries
