The Other Side

Here is the right side of the altered book cover I'm currently working on.

ingredients: vintage book cover, vintage book pages, vintage sewing pattern, map, image transfer, hand-printed rice paper, monotype, acrylic gel, watercolor pencil, stitching, fossil.

Stay tuned for further developments!


  1. This is beautiful Sharmon! I could have sworn I left a comment on your last post--it's not there, but I wanted to tell you I like the other side as well :-)

  2. Thanks so much, Deborah! The left side wasn't finished yet, but will be soon and then I'll finally put it all together.

  3. so gorgeous, sharmon - everything! but i especially love that stitching... xoxo

  4. vraiment un travail magnifique! j'aime!

  5. I LOVE this!! So amazing and organic (I know that word is overused but in this case, well... :)
    and gorgeous. Your work continues to evolve in such an incredible way - I'm happy for you!

  6. Patti, I think organic is a great word; thanks for the wonderfully kind compliment!

  7. This piece seems to be growing...I mean literally, like in a garden. It's got that kind of energy. Love all the textures, layers, tones that make up a visually engaging composition.
    And on the other side, I love how those cookie-cutter figures disappear along a line of perspective; and how one of them has a petunia for a delicate skirt. Fun!

  8. I like the stitching too, there's a movement to this piece that carries you 'round

  9. this is a wonderful combination of so many different kinds of vintage and rice and found papers.. very nice!

  10. This page has a lovely freshness and a sense of the liveliness of nature. Just beautiful! The more I study it, the more I like it.

    Have a lovely week!
