Making Books With Ugly Colours

lesson 8 with Carla Sonheim

Imagine combining colours that you don’t necessarily like and creating a piece of art with it. That was the assignment from Carla in her Year Long Class 2021.

To add another element of interest we were to use old pieces of art that we no longer liked and cut it up into rectangles. On the unpainted side we added four colours that we don’t normally use or just dislike. I’m not much of a purple person so I used dark purple, dark green, bright pink and pale pink. Here’s what the original side looked like and then you’ll see the newly painted side with ‘ugly’ colours. I’m sure some of you won’t consider these colour ugly and I have to admit that they did grow on me.

Once the paint dried, each rectangle was cut in half and each half with folded in half. Then the pieces were all stacked together to create a small book and I sewed the pages together with book binding thread. This process created two books.

In the first book I added collage, stickers, marks in black and white ink and I wrote words. Here is the first book I created.

Last on the Card – April 2021

thanks to Bush Boy for hosting this monthly challenge https://bushboy.blog/2021/05/01/last-on-the-card-april-2021/

The last photo on my Lumix Panasonic is a shot at my bird feeder. I try to keep my camera with the zoom lens close by so that when an interesting bird comes by I can capture it at the feeder. It’s harder than it looks because any little movement, even on the other side of the glass scares them off.
