I have had this old Byron book lying around for years. I got it from a house clearance shop and I have never really known what to do with the book. I always felt it was important somehow...
The book has all kinds of post cards and envelopes inside, filled with lovely old handwriting and stamps. It was obviously a well-loved book in it's previous owners' care.
Full of notes on the poems and little age spots that just show how well-loved it really was. I hesitated to use the pages to create art work as I didn't want to vandalise this lovely old book. I realised though that the book was lying unused on a shelf. Better that it should come alive within some new art work instead I think.
The beginnings of my first sketch, made in pens.
Time to add some colour with my new pro-markers.
Now it's time to add some stamping!
Here is the art print all finished and listed in my store. TA-DA!
I hope you've enjoyed this little peek into my process.
Have a great day people!
