i'm still hooked on monochromatic layers; trying to get as much "depth" into flat pages as i possibly can. also pretty into silhouettes right now; i made this one while cutting out a figure from a magazine... the layer i held behind the lady was of this cool anna aspnes paper with the clouds and trees.
again a lot of layers on top of the page, and then a large star... plus lots of small punched dots... cut out to reveal a bit of the page below. (which, yeah, is actually the one i made BEFORE this b/c i liked what you could see of it better; the advantage of working with a ledger is the cover lifts off so you can re-arrange pages any time you want!)
this was going to be a grid of objects, centered around the 1970's instamatic photo of my family in a boat on a vacation we took one year to canada. i'm not sure how it became a super-inky scrapbook page, but i think i kinda like it! :)
006: punk window
no one's gonna "get" this except amy t and me, which is fine. we saw these amazing wrinkled crinkly plastic dresses at the met's fabulous punk exhibit, and i was thinking how cool it would be to use wrinkled crinkly plastic as a window on a page. i've sandwiched a few roughly torn magazine images into the plastic, and sewn on one of my instagrams taken on the roof of the museum that same day. then i tried to create some chrysanthemums like the ones imran qureshi had painted there. this is one of the oddest things i've made... and i think maybe my favorite... it really sums up that day for me AND contains so many new ideas i want to continue exploring. i'm not sure it's actually interesting to anyone else, so i'm sorry about that, but i promise to post something really PRETTY and polished looking on tuesday! ♥
this has more plastic as in the idea above, which i've used to make really rough magazine image transfers, and then embedded with scraps of paper. oh yeah and i stitched some clusters of flowers on top! :) again, a page that's ALL ABOUT process, as opposed to outcome. the leftovers of the title refer to some of the bits on the page, but mostly to the fact that i still had A LOT of ideas i wanted to try out, and this seemed like a great place to write them down.
