Art From Old Books

25 Sep

 

What is it that is so attractive about a picture painted on a page from a book?  Or sculpture designed using old books?  There are many techniques that can be applied and the results are fabulous.  Here are just a few for you to check out.  This first one is found at Inspiration Green.Look at this wonder paper carving by Su BlackwellThe artwork of Rachael Ashe has several pictures of her altered books.

So get out your scissors, glue, paints, inks and give it a try. Ready to try one on your own, but don’t know where to start?  How about this wreath from Alisa Burke?

      His work just amazes me. How does he see that in his mind and translate it into such wonderful work. ~ Marla
