Altered book !!

For the last two years I have been working on 2 round robins with altered books. This is my last one. WOOO HOOO.

This is for serenity, with out words. I painted the flowers and the Asian symbol with black acrylic paint. I added glitter to the wet paint and some copper to the "flowers". I made a Gothic arch with some Asian stamps. and added a deep red button for a tiny bit of color. I also added the wings that will crackle over night.

I like to do abstract work. I have two paintings in my house. I have a bunch of canvas that is ready for me. Hope to get working on that again soon.

Does the Asian symbol mean Serenity? Very cool idea! (But does that count as "without words"? lol)

I have never thought of adding glitter to paint. That's a great idea. I have an altered book web site -- techniques explained, no real gallery.
