Altered Book Thingie Part 2

I finished the second part of the collage/assemblage/altered book thingie!  If you didn't see the first part, it's in the previous post.

Ingredients:  vintage book cover, monotype, caran d'ache crayons, watercolor pencils

 Soon I hope to have the middle part done, and then put it all together, so stay tuned...


  1. wow - I love the work you're doing!! your book thingie certainly is an original, like you, and seems to represent the array of technique/media you manage to beautify!

  2. This is crazy good, a wonderful beginning. I'll be watching for more postings. Great!!

  3. Fantastic to visit today and see so much wonderful work going on Sharmon....

    the post on the workshop was fascinating.. I took note of the cloth filled with seeds to rub over the piece you were working on.
    How briliant to learn all these ancient techniques...what a treat!

    Great to see this lovely productiveness and gorgeous work happening!

  4. This image in my sidebar had me racing over to have a closer look. Lovely work, Sharmon!

  5. wow this is so unusual, its wild and unrestrained and it works!

  8. Patti- This is a new adventure, and I'm really in a learning curve here... thanks so much!

    Thanks, Mary Ann- I hope to do more of these, if this one works out.

    Sophie, thanks for visiting. Yes, these ancient techniques are fascinating; I keep imagining the people who did this so long ago...

    Thank you, Robyn!

    Paula, thanks for the lovely compliment- "wild and unrestrained"- I love that!

    Thanks, Cat. It was a cool class.

    Thanks, Deb. I feel self-conscious about it- afraid the book binders might be offended that I tore up old books! I'm glad you like it!

  9. absolutely gorgeous Sharmon!! I'm loving your new adventure :)

  10. Very original work. I love the idea, the workmanship, your originality.
