I started of with a 6 inch square zig zag book which I bought from Art Van Go. It's made from 100% recycled cotton rag and you get 5 of them in the pack for £3.50 You can see more about the paper here.
I worked out what size I wanted to work and drew a recatangle on each page.
I cut up some of the painted paper to the same size and tried it out on the pages.
I cut up the painted paers in different ways and glued them to the book pages.
I couldn't decide whether to show you each page as it developed or as in the way I worked. I chose the latter. I worked on each page and then took a photo.
Originally I was going to work on the small pieces of paper and use my sewing machine but I'm not very practised with that sort of work so I decided to do faux stitching instead.
These pages are finished - for now! I'm going to leave them for a while and then come back to them to see if I should add anything else.
And of course, there's the other side to do yet.
Thanks for stopping by.
