I was in the middle of fiddling with my altered book when the phone rang announcing that the book I requested was in at the library. I read about it on a writing blog I follow. While the glue was drying I sped off to town. And while the glue was drying I began to turn that library book's pages. I pretty much turned dry pages yesterday. ;^)
Spreading gesso with a card is way too messy for me. I'll be back to using a brush.
The idea of using ordinary white glue for a raised effect is good but things kinda got out of hand as they spread and sloped and ...
Then there was the problem of just hitting the top of the glue with the paint brush. ???
It wasn't too hard to ignore the altered book as I was not thrilled and I doubt that this is my style. I feel I have too many different images and the little duckies on a ribbon were a waste. I need to think things through better.
I've had to quit singing in the rain because the white stuff is sifting down in very large flakes. I hope some better ideas sift down as well! But then the next book in the series may be calling my name and I can stick to dry pages. I wonder if the phone will ring again today?
