Grace Mendez Altered Book Page

Altered Book Page E

One of my favorite substrates is an altered book.

I have been working with this book for a while.

Books with images already in place act as collage elements without having to add them yourself. When you work around the images, it’s as if you are in collaboration with another person.

I previously prepared the page with gesso. It’s really nice when you can dive right into a page and not have to wait for paint to dry.
