|This painting was created last year for the Women Who Run With the Wolves book group.|
It wanted to become something else, something more compact.
I opted for the rag book, a fine way to recycle art.
|The image was flipped over, measured out in 6" x 8" rectangles and then cut.|
It came out to 18 pages. I cut, roughly, 9 wide strips of calico fabrics, stacked them and then sewed them together.
This is the spine.
|Starting with the back of the first page and the bottom fabric, Mod Podge was applied to glue the page to the spine.|
Let dry completely or use a hair dryer to speed up the process.
|The next page was aligned with the first. The second fabric glued down onto the back. Let dry.|
Repeat for each page until all pages are glued and dry.
|The top and bottom of the spine was cut into a fringe.|
|Now I have a small rag book for some quick art and journal writing.|
