Altered Book Project

I've recently become involved in an altered book project with 5 other artists. I've chosen my book after much deliberating & trawling of secondhand shops in Worcester, Pershore & St Ives! I've finally settled on an old title about 'Learning to Love your Weeds' - I thought this was very appropriate as I certainly have enough weeds on my allotment plot!

I have decided to try lots of different techniques in my book rather than stick to one - so far I've been block printing, collage using photography, embossing & stencilling. I've found lots of my old art materials including some dried up inks which I think are probably beyond saving now. It's interesting to re-visit techniques I've used many years ago.

As you can see I'm continuing with the bird theme at the moment....
