This came to me in a dream a few weeks ago - you know, those vivid dreams that kind of stick in your mind even when you wake up. These are why I keep a pencil and pad on the nightstand. Anyways, I had this poem or phrase that kept coming to me in my dream with some vivid images and I woke up thinking I need to make this into an art book of some kind and this was what I came up with.
I also have vivid dreams like this about bead shopping - those dreams make me so happy - but I always wake up as I am paying and what a humongous let down that is.
Anyways - warning, this is rather pic heavy, even though it is only a few pages long.
It is made with each page being several pieces of chipboard thick because they are several layers of cut pieces over each other to give a dimensional effect, and hand painted with acrylics.
It also became a great way for me to practice lettering.
The book is 4"x4", and probably a bit over an inch wide. I used washi tape to hide the rougher cut eges.
It was a lot of fussy cutting, and gluing of pieces together, and I had to work a few problems out as I went along, but ultimately, I am happy to have finished it and quite like it. Besides - it's always nice to make a dream come true now, isn't it More details and pictures in my blog post.
