This is my fire spread for the earth, air water and fire altered book.

I took a photo of the layout for the phoenix spread before I stuck it down. I found that seeing it as a photo helped me to change the layout for the better. Unfortunately the unstuck one looks a little better than the stuck one because it has more depth.

Fabric Painting

Fabric Painting, originally uploaded by juliestenning.

A couple of weeks ago our textiles group experimented with brayers and fabric paints. We put the paint on glass, rolled with a brayer and then put fabric on top. We also did some drawing on the glass. This was done by Mavis and she gave it to me so I could use it for the water spread in the earth, air, fire and water altered book. It didn't work out because it was the wrong shape and size for the book I was working on. Even scanned and stretched it didn't work.

I really like it though and need to think of something else to use it in.

I just love the hinge on this door. I was hoping to use it on the Venice image in the previous post but it didn't work out.

Part of a spread I have done in an altered book. The theme of the book is earth, air, water and fire. This is water.
