Notebook Cover, 2015

My most valued recipes were in a file folder and slowly getting tattered.  Some were my mother's, some my mother-in-law's, and some just plain delicious.  I decided to put them in plastic sleeves and in a binder.  I found an old blue, cloth covered 3 ring binder at the local recycle center and painted it in greens and red craft paint.  I added some lighter tones through a stencil. The spots are dotted tissue that came with a purchase.  I tore it and attached the pieces with acrylic matte medium by first brushing the cover, placing the tissue on the wet medium, and then painting over the tissue with a brush and medium. I like the way the tissue nearly disappears.
