My Creative Space:

My creative space has been packed with paintings and commissions, but I have not forgotten about the Fiction Project.

Here are some of my newer pages:

Pgs. 5-6, unfinished

Pgs. 7 (finished) and 8 (unfinished)

I think my favourite in the book so far is page 7. It was the first page that I thought of to incorporate collage, and I'm so happy that I did. The paper I used has gold accents that you can't see well from the scan. I will most definitely be putting more bits of patterned paper throughout this project.

To make the pages better for paint, collage and heavy marker I've either i) stuck two pages together, or ii) apply a thin sheet of watercolor paper - depending on what I'm doing on the pages. For both, I use double sided tape - that way I don't get a 'bubbling' of paper while it dries.

This part of my submission will only take 4-6 more pages. And then I can start on the 'dabblings'. Although I'm enjoying creating this little children's story, I am looking forward to less-planned applications in the book.
