Altered Book - working with a friend


My art pal, Jackie, and I decided to exchange books back and forth and use the "found text" technique to alter them. Here is the spread I did in Jackie's book today. The text reads - "Nothing endures, change is ceaseless and true. The egg evolved over decades."

The use of the egg element was serendipitous. I was straightening up my studio and this little egg cut-out was lying on the floor, left-over from another project a few months ago. I tossed it on my work table and as I was finding interesting text in the book, there was the word "egg". And so, these pages were the result of keeping a very untidy studio. I knew there was a reason for not cleaning it up. LOL
