It's the Holidays - mixed media assemblage altered art original

copyright by L. Apple

Holiday Time- sold
7.25 x 9.25"
"It's the Holiday season but Mary really isn't in
the mood even though Albert (the family dog)
is trying to entertain her by dancing and smoking
his pipe! "

With my warped sense of humor...I
like this one! I paint the canvas and then
add images, objects, cloth etc.
This one
has some old jewelry and the black and white

on the floor and wood frame is cloth.

Evolution of Mammals 3D carved book art by Linda Apple



"Evolution of the Mammals" - sold
8.50" x 11"x 1" Book Art

CLICK HERE to see more in my Etsy Shop
If you love animals, you might enjoy this one~
Colorful images create a 3D look into "Evolution of the Mammals".
First it is sealed shut and then, using delicate knives,scissors, and tweezers,
I carve into into the book, one page at a time, to reveal its hidden treasures.
Nothing is moved from its original location in the book. It takes a lot of time, patience and a steady hand but the end result is a detailed 3D view of the inside and "new" life to an old outdated and unwanted book.
A clear glass panel is placed under the front cover to protect it from the elements. There is a notched hanger on the back so it can be hung on the wall or placed in a small book stand.

I love books! This is about the old outdated and unwanted books that even
the bookstores won't take. You know the ones... the yard sale, thrift store, can't sell books.
Like most of you... I have them and decided to give them new life.
It takes a very steady hand and lots of time & patience but I really enjoy the adventure.
