Here's what I've been working on!!! It's a book shrine featuring kokopelli. I have a friend who was an enormous help during my early recovery, bringing me all sorts of things, doing Christmas shopping for me, etc. She has a liking for the little kokopelli dude, so I wanted to make her something unique to say thank you.
You know those books with hiding places cut into them? It's the same idea, but after I cut a big hole in the middle of the book, I glued the page edges together to make a solid compartment. Then I just painted and glued in what you see. The kokopelli is cut from sandpaper :)
I got the old book on the library sale shelf... It was a book about some people in China, but the color is kinda sandy, terra-cotta-ish and kinda Southwestern, right? I painted another little kokopelli to put on the front of the book.
Here's an in progress shot before I had all of the dry grasses and things glued in. I was tempted to stop here, because the night scene was just so serene.... But that wasn't the plan. Anyhoo, I hope you're all having a great weekend. Good night!
This is beautiful. :)
