For Book Arts. Use flour to create a paste to make a glue to create covers for future projects. My paste was super lumpy so I found this project to be a bit difficult. I do like some of the affects I got though.

For Book Arts. Make a book without paper. To make my book I used scrap pieces of wood, decorative metal, dyed twine, metal paint, patina solution, glitter, glue, acrylic paint, & crackle paste. It is an exploration in texture. A book without words.

I love when my classes inspire each other. I used the techniques in Mixed Media to inspire the book for my Book Arts class. To create the first pieces,I taped the decorative metal onto wood and painted with metal paint and patina to create covers for my books. The second one is blue acrylic paint, crackle paste, & bronze metal paint on wood.

My 3 little books. I used an 8 panel folding technique. The pages are made from a single piece of folded paper. Each book has its own concept- -Receipts 1.28-2.4 2012- My receipts from buying supplies for this semester :) -Quotes- Inspired by a list of art quotes I collected. They are
"There are no rules. That is how art is born, how breakthroughs happen."~Helen Frankenthaler
"I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it."~Pablo Picasso
"Art is making something out of nothing and selling it."~Frank Zappa
"I do not take drugs. I am drugs."~Salvador Dali
"Art is an experience, not an object."~Robert Motherwell
"Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep."~Scott Adams
-The Story of a Line- This is an idea I would like to explore more. It was supposed to be longer but I got 2 of my books mixed up so Quotes got longer and The Story of a Line got shorter. I was going to try and use card stock for the cover but 1) it was too difficult to fold well and 2) it was too heavy of a paper for my light weight rice paper.
