Bayou Book

Click to enlarge for better views:

Here is the 'Altered Book' made as the result of a weekend workshop by Ruth Dorn, formerly known here as The Mask Lady/The Scarf Lady -  any class from her is time well spent.

Tentatively titled "Swamp Things", I folded, spindled and generally mutilated a book about the Bayous, adding birds, beasts, butterflies and orchids from other sources.  Oh, and a couple of insects.

Alligators, blackbirds and egrets, oh my! pop out of swampy pages.  I'm not finished yet. You may even see a mermaid or two.  I'm addicted.

This is one of my favorite pages.  Just happened to have the feathers!
Cover is painted metallic green.  
More to come.....
