Altered Book - Paper Women
Paint, rubber stamps, collage
These two pages are inspired by a Sandy Gordon collection. I created a "body" to go with the head. She has musical notes on her skirt which is a napkin. Music inspires a lot of ideas for me and the Flight of the Bumblebee immediately came to mind when I looked at the collage elements...the jar of honey, the beehive. I had a couple of great bee rubber stamps. The gingham ribbon is a remnant piece from my neighbor's quilting stash. Close up of the woman....
I was stung a couple of times this fall by yellow jackets....so I'm not sure why I like the idea of creating art using them as some of the elements....but, on the other hand, where would we be without the bees!
