Do not follow where the path may lead...Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.-Benjamin Franklin
Lesson 4 of Elizabeth's AB class contained a very extensive review of different types of glues and some of their uses. After reading all and hopefully digesting some of the information, it was time to get down and dirty and do some experimenting on our own. She asked us to use four different glues plus gesso to adhere two pages of our book together and document the results. She suggested we could decorate according to our book theme and make tags to document the results. I kept hearing in my mind..."There are no rules" and just went with whatever came to me. I will just show the finished pages here and not go into all the details of how the glues reacted. The results are on the tags, however. I painted with watered down acrylic paint and made my tags from recycled manilla folders. Other embellishments were cut from previously removed pages from my book and some stickers or pages from travel brochures. As my book is on travel, I decided to make my tags based on the types of vehicles that I have used during my travels. The pages are pretty self-explanatory, so I will only make a few comments.
That is all I managed this week, although I did try the stencil frottage technique which was unsuccessful. I did try the glue resist painting, but my glue must have been old & dried yellow & flat rather than white or clear. I will try this one again as soon as I get some fresh glue.
My thanks, once again, to Elizabeth for all the time and effort in putting this free course together--I'm having a blast!
