I think my favourite kind of altered art is using wonderful book pages, so when I came across this page on fishing in my stash, I knew I had to have a play with it. (Thank you to whoever sent it me, it was bound to be someone on here!  Cheesy)

First I painted, then collaged and drew/scribbled on it to emphasise certain areas. It has a little sparkle when it catches the light, that you can see a little in the close ups, which reminds me of the way sunlight travels through water Smiley



Here's a couple of close ups


Had to hook a poor fish on the line. Powerless to resist... Cheesy


Thanks for looking! Smiley
