This is another piece of my mixed media series focused on creating collages using old and discarded books. "Sixth Sign" is comprised of book cover cloth, end papers, illustrations and finished with splattered ink and gold leaf. The collage is 'built' on watercolor paper and then adhered to wood cradled board. The edges are left natural which adds to the beauty of the piece. This is my way of repurposing abandoned, ordinary objects and turning them into unique works of art.
