Junk Art Book - upcycled art

Inspired by Kim Schuster's beautiful Junk Book I just had to have a go.

I've been wanting to do something like this for years and it's been great fun so far.
I've used cereal box and other thin card packaging to create the pages which I've painted with a mixture of acrylic gesso, acrylics and some poster paint. I punched holes in them before painting, and I'll bind it together with ribbons and string when it's finished.

Next step will be a bit of collage and some ocean themed drawings and paintings..

Here is a slideshow of my progress so far:
