What's Doing Wednesday? Mixed Media Aceo


Adding some watercolors to the aceos
and agonized over tearing up a 100 year old book! 

I did tear it apart, it wasn't a valuable first edition type book, the cover was damaged when I bought it and it was published many times over, so I felt it probably would have been thrown away if I had donated it to the thrift store.  I bought the book a long while ago and saved it for just this purpose since I liked the old style paper pages and will use them as foundation pieces on some aceos in the future. 

I started this aceo at a crossroads in my life.  The angel image is of an ornament given to me many years ago.  This aceo is a work in progress and nearly finished.

I know what you mean about destroying something, who's to say what it's worth 1st edition or 21st? But giving it a new life... priceless ;)

I like your point of view on the book, feel I may go tear up a few more!
