Mixed Media Monday - "Rust"


This is my interpretation of "Rust", today's theme at Mixed Media Monday. I named this completed altered book Rust & Roses because it was such a mix of grunge and romance. I don't usually stay with one style or theme throughout an entire book--it's too constricting to be that consistent. I enjoy creating as my mood elicits.

Anything in the red spectrum is my favorite. What an attractive cover for your book! I'm not very good at covers but love looking at them to get ideas.

What's in the rest of the book?

What a fascinating combination...rust and roses. I am always interested in the way that grunge and pretty go together and you have combined them beautifully. Love your blog banner!

Its great to see a librarian altering books. The librarian where I use to teach would freak out when I told her how I would use old books. Love your work!
