Reuse // With my Calgary Public Library card, I receive free online art classes on and the one I'm currently enjoying is the "Altered Book Daily Challenge". I'm not doing anything daily necessarily however I am having some fun trying new techniques. I found an old art textbook, and tada away I go. I've cut holes through layers of pages. I've pasted images inside. This morning, I gessoed some pages (white and black), and worked on the strangeness that is painting on a much difference surface than I've ever experienced before. I used some gouache and black pen, however my standard water resistant ink isn't so water resistant on gesso! Some things need to be approached with flexibility and a shrug, and this book is the best practice for playing and experimentation. I highly recommend the course, and finding a way to reuse old textbooks and books for those of us that maybe hold on to books for longer than they are ever useful, for anyone. ..#calgarypubliclibrary #creativebug #zentangle #ink #doodlesat5am #gouache #alteredbook #reuse
