Cut up!

Remember this?

Well, now it looks like this!

I turned the finished sheet over and cut it up.  I did it from the back so that I couldn't worry about what the image was on the pages of the book I am going to make.    This is the cover.

I had papers left from the workshop that I hadn't used and painted them with watercolour paints.

I put the pages out.

I stuck down the shapes I had cut out of the painted papers.

 I did the same with the other 3 pages.

I rubbed Oil Pastel over the yellow paint and then did a watercolour wash over the top.

I also added some white highlights with an Oil Pastel.

I added some colour to the cover.

I stuck the pages together with double-sided tape and glue stick.

The shape that I used throught the book is based on an Honesty plant.  It is a bit of a cliché but I am going toput Honesty related quotes and Bible verses into the book.  Come back later in the week to see the finished book.

Thanks for stopping by.
