Here is what I finally decided to take to India for my altered b00k project. The thing I always find scary when I start to look for items for a new project is that I had all of this stuff in my stash.
I love to shop the clearance tables and can't resist any sort of paint product. This photo shows 3 Delta Dabbers that I got for $1 each at Big Lots. 4 Liquid Appliques that I got at Joannes for 50 cents each. The multicolor glitter pack was $1.99 at Tuesday Morning. All of the Golden products were free from a product demo. For the watercolor crayons and colored pencils, I used 40% off coupons at Joannes. Hmmm, would you call me thrifty, a great shopper or just cheap????
I will also take some brushes, scissors and a Styrofoam tray for a pallet. I totally decided to nix the magazines and fabric scrapes based on suggestions from the previous post and try to use local objects that I find there.
Here are a couple of pages I painted to test out what I am taking. These are just backgrounds and I will collage on top of them. I will try to post my progress over the next couple of weeks so stop back to see the results.
Truthfully I am not looking forward to this trip but in this economy it is
hard to turn down the work. It will take 22 hours or get there and I will be gone for 12 days. Hopefully this project will keep me busy all of those nights in the hotel.
