Altered art book: Page 22 My Heart has Wings…


Continuing with my altered art book: after a couple of weeks I have managed to do another page, and I can’t say that it has been easy (as all the text was chosen a few years ago).  I am nearly coming towards the end of the first chapter : there are 3 chapters all together and already this  book won’t close  lol!  The words are;

The time had come

He waited until she went to work one morning

He was standing in a shrine, that even his presence was sacrilege

He muttered stations to himself like incantations, like curses, Moscow, Brussels, Helsinki, Hiversum…

His mother’s room seemed to shrink.”

This page is decorated with felt tip pen, organza ribbon, and chalk pastel to which I have added water to seal the colour in.  I printed out a pair of wings, filled the negative spaces with liquid glitter glue and place a heart shaped gem in the centre to form the ‘shrine’  Handmade paper and gems were also added in the corners.
