Book 22

Book 22 is about three-quarters the way finished. I have been working on it for quite a while, between other art projects, one or two pages at a time. It has no theme, and no story to tell. Its purpose is…fun, or maybe to help relax or try new techniques. A few times I worked on it while I was feeling emotional so it has actually been therapeutic!

I started by collecting a bunch of ugly art, designer paper that I probably would never use and odd graph paper, written on legal pad paper and “waste paper” (paper used to protect the table).

Then I used my geli plate, stencils and what-not to add color to the white backs sides of the designer papers.

Then I trimmed the papers and bound them. I was careful to make the binding loose because I would be adding lots of stuff. Evidently, it wasn’t loose enough and has split. So I will have to re-bind it. Oh, well.

These pages are so very different, they demonstrate my eclectic taste. “They” say that in order to be a successful artist you should have a “cohesive body of work.” That way people can more easily identify your work. I guess I will never be a successful artist, my work is as eclectic as I am!

About nball252

Hi, my name is Naomi, I am a Christian, certified aromatherapist. I also have an Associate Degree in Bible. I looked for books about aromatherapy from a Christian point of view and didn't find any, so I wrote one, The Aromatherapy Advocate. An introductory book for Christians on aromatherapy. I have one son whom I home schooled. I started using essential oils 10 years ago. I love the fragrances and I love the powerful benefits of using essential oils. I received my certificate about 10 years ago and have been teaching and writing about aromatherapy from a Christian perspective since then.
