This is another altered book spread I’ve been working on for a ‘Dark Art’ round robin I am in. The book’s theme is ‘Malice in Wonderland’ and it examines the word ‘Malice’. I found a cool quote by the writer Taylor Caldwell, “I have been the victim of heartless malice”.

I began by prepping the background with a variety of acrylic paints. and then scratched down to the undercoat layer. I went back in with other colors, and pens and gold paints. The illustration on the left is a hand colored lino stamp. If you look back on older posts you can see the original stamp. I collaged some french words around the image. Then I used my trusty dymo plastic label maker to punch out the words. I’ll seal it before sending.
