ABC Wednesday

ABC Wednesday is the fun meme that puts the focus on a new letter each week and challenges people to respond to the letter in some way.

This week, the letter is B.

B is for books

old books that have been discarded.

But these books have been altered, and been given a new life. The pages have been painted or collaged, some have been torn out to use in other ways,

The result - art.

I have several of these altered books on the go. Usually I paint the pages but sometimes, I collage other papers on them - especially gelli papers. Then they will become a canvas for art.

Be sure to check here for how others approach B this week.
