Textile translations: mixed media


I am taking a wonderful online class with Maggie Grey. The class is using her new book titled "textile translations: mixed media". So far we have done 2 lessons and I am really enjoying myself. In lesson 2 we are altering a book. My pages in the book are not dry yet, but I did the technique on some paper and that has dried. I got so carried away with this that I have done quite a few papers along with the book and have a feeling I will be doing more. I still have to do more to the pages, but so far so good.

Eileen, what a wonderful background piece. Really though, it's one that could stand on it's own I think...imagine it 10+ times this size, wrapped around a studio canvas and displayed on a large wall. Awesome!

I love this page. You did an awesome job! Is the book about textiles, and you applied the techs to paper? I have not seen this book before. Any other information about this would be appreciated.
