Altered Art History Book [Cont]





Way back in 2012 I sorted some books for charity and this one [History of Art - Impressionism] was among them. The spine was disintegrating and not good enough to give away so I thought I would use it for art work. The idea was to be inspired by the art in it, although this didn't always work. The book is not finished but I keep having a dabble in it.

Dolls on the Run

The dolls are not new, I made them way back in 2009. They're made up of houses and are called housekeeper and housemaid. I was looking thru my digital photos and saw them and thought I would let them escape to the country for a holiday.

More Collage in an Altered Book


The Angel of the North is a local sculpture, it is very tall as you can see by the little people near to his feet.
