50 pages for "White" Fatbook

The scans did not come out too well on these, they look MUCH better in "real" life.

These are the pages I made for a White Fatbook for my Art Chix group. We had to try to use only black and white. I made charms for each page, each one has a different image. I soldered around the edge of each one and added a jump ring.

August Art Technique for Altered Art Obsession

This months technique was from Claudine Hellmuth's "Collage Discovery Workshop Techniques." These pages are 4 x 6. On the front page I painted the background blue and white. I added vintage images, a torn piece from an old book and some lace. I rubber stamped the edge.
On the back page I glued a page from an old book on 110# card stock. I painted on yellow ochre and titanium white. Then I heat transferred a laser print onto it. I did the vasoline method and painted blue and white over that. When it was dry I rubbed off the excess paint. I brushed on gel medium and sprayed on a clear sealer when it was all dry.

October art technique For Altered Art Obsession

Every other month we do a different art technique. We picked something we wanted to try from Lynn Perella's "Artist's Journals & Sketchbooks". This piece is 4 x 6. I chose to try the tissue paper background. I gessoed the paper, let it dry, then added tissue paper with gel medium. When that was dry I painted 3 different colors of paint randomly. I also stamped the leaf design in Staz-on. I added a skirt I made out of a vintage magazine to the lady. Then I added a wire beaded tab to the edge. I love trying new techniques, then I dont get stuck in a rut.

Art technique for Altered Art Obsession-Back

This is the back. I placed the paper over stencils then rubbed with crayons and filled in with oil pastels.
