ANTIQUE BOOK BECOMES ART JOURNAL

 I could not bear to throw this very old book away.
It is signed & dated at 26 October 1850.
'Life of Robert Bruce  The Restorer of Scottish Independence'

 But it really was falling to pieces!

I have started to use it as my Art Journal.
I have glued pairs of pages together with soft matte gel to give the pages some stability.
Masking tape used where the bundles have loosened.
Gesso applied leaving text exposed on some parts & pages.



So then the Creativity Begins........
