Aquì, en mi corazòn, arde la llama
de la vida tan intenso que aveces duele...
Here, in my heart, burns the fire of life
so deep it sometimes hurts...
I am working on my big fat altered book
again, this is an old encyclopedia that I got
at a flea market for like 10 dlls, for four
big, hard cover books filled with old vintage
images and lessons about lenguages and stuff,
I love it because I get to use the images for
other collages and the rest of the pages are
for painting and of course experimenting!
This is still in progress and taking a rest now,
but it could be left like this, that`s the beauty
of altered books!
My mom started me on this art by giving
me my first beautiful book about how to make
them about when I first opened it, I thought I
went to art heaven! Lol!
Since then, it`s one of my favorite surfices
to work with, some friends know about this
and give me their old books but it`s hard to
store them so I usually give them away
I`ll show you more paes later! Have a fun
