:lol: you guys are :heart:

Yes, I love the book, too. It will be cool to fill it - the binding leaves some room for the collage layers. There will be all kinds of experiments :oh: :chacha: 

I think my sister's book should be called "voyage into the Blue" as that is her favorite colour.

So, the 30 days challenge.

 

After making the book and the cover, I went on to the next prompts:
1/ Make marks using your favorite tools
2/ Create pattern using scraps from other projects (I used a piece of my cut-up big collage)
3/ Use small used packaging to create a collage (follow the link for inspiration by Nadine Mitchell https://www.instagram.com/p/B_dCFvYnAUj/)
I stole Nadine Mitchell's trick to paint the box black.
(That was hilarious 😀 I found a second small box and will do another one.)

This is the same page, once with the marks and then with the added stripes from the big collage.

The stripes make it look like something is in a jail - and it looks like there is a black creature IN the jail :duck:

And now that i looked at it that way, the box project looks like another creature with a blue beak, a white eye, and a red tail.

Interesting! Telling a story. I thought of vertical cross-hatching # # as in a drawing. :p

I like how (to my eyes) the S and the 3 bring the white background into the black shape.

What is good, is noticing something different each time I look at the collages :yes:

:yes: that was the intended effect :manic:

Now I see a black creature behind bars, too, Goli :shock:

New one! It's 30x30 cm and aside from one piece of printed tissue (the orange-red in the bottom right corner), it's all made up of scavenged posters.
