Page 2 Curiousity
Well here is the second page. I had quite the time with this, I didn't realize at first about the prompts and if I was SUPPOSED to use them or not, or if it was just a suggestion. After looking at some other pages, it seemed most people did it that way. I did it a little different (What's new!) but I turned it around into a version of it!!
I had the idea since this is a book about me - the curiousity page should be one of the first. To the left of the page you can see the back of the FIRST page which I am making into a book that opens up in 2 and not sure what to put behind there yet.....
Anyway, I wanted this to be a bunch of the first pages glued together with a pic showing through so that is my 3D. First I was going to make it a perfect rectangle like a frame but when I started ripping out the middle, I liked how it turned out cause it was all these different levels of paper and text. I knew I wanted question marks on here, but as I was ripping, I saw it was turning into its own question mark! So I made the form of it and when I was ripping the bottom parts off, I came across text that had the word "QUESTIONS" in it! How cool is that? So I kept that page and that is my TEXT.
I then put question marks out of MAGAZINES next. Instead of paint, I used MARKER and colored in the question marks and the original frame. I then put PAPER pieces on the corners. I like the vines entwining and going who knows where. Then I WROTE the definition of Curiousity on the side. I liked how artsymama put the charcoal on the edges to make it stand out, so I did CHARCOAL on all my edges.
I think for it to look complete, I will have to finish the back of the first page but that's for another day!
Here is a close up
Thanks for looking and here's to number 3!!
Oh! And in case any of you are CURIOUS (Ha!) ..... I was! The picture is of a aluminum bronze international boundary marker on the Alaska/Yukon border at the edge of the Arctic ocean. It was put there in 1912.
Also, Sarah got her project done(see previous post) and the poems are awesome! I will post some,if she'll let me!
Now I'm off to a rock concert!! Wish me luck.....
