Repurposing Books

Another thing I like to do at the op shop is look for old children's books to use as they are for journals. I like ones that are A4 size with lots of colourful illustrations and I just add a coat of gesso to each page before painting/creating on them. The way the illustrations peek through in the background is lovely and adds to the layering affect that I love on mixed media pieces.

Here's one I created earlier. :-)

I saw this hair style as a top wedding one somewhere on the interweb and had to recreate it. I just love its messy structure.
