Cat - Blank notebook with Altered Cover

Copyright © 2007 Juana Almaguer
Centimeters 10.5 W x 10 H
Inches about 3.5 x 3.5
40 blank pages inside


I spent the day making this altered note book. The notebook's original cover was of a fibrous, beige rice paper. I took my own ink/watercolor painting of a cat and glued this to the original book cover. I covered the inside flaps with a red and gold filigree rice paper. The cat painting was done on transparent rice paper which allows hints of the texture and color of the original cover to come through. The ink line drawing is based on a drawing of my cat.

Wow! What a great treatment of both subject and execution! It almost looks it is purring. Love the organic feel of your piece. Brao!
