Board Book Process pages 9 and 10



These are the last two pages in the board book. These are all magazine picture transfers. For some reason they didn't work as clearly as the black and white transfers. I couldn't get all the paper off and they ended up muted. But I thought it could work as a background for colour copies/photos.
I scrumbled raw umber over the top to bring them together and to tone down the gesso white of the background. The gesso picked up the transfers better than the painted acrylic backgrounds.
The lettering is printed on acetate and then glued on.
It isn't finished yet.
