right here, is a quick lil post about what you can do when you've got some old hardcover books, a young adventurous artist, and just about anything they can paint, draw, or colour with. i got this box of books from the recycling depot for another project and brought one out because loji wanted to watercolour but i couldn't find our watercolour paper. so...hmmm...book pages...obviously. when i suggested he pick a page, he looked at me with these sneaky unbelieving eyes....like, "you're seriously gunna let me paint in this book?" "go big buddy. make that book super awesome. it's better filled with your beautiful art that blended up to make more blank paper. " to this he went to work. he had a lot of fun.
when he was done painting, we would just leave the book open to dry. he'd walk by it later and notice it was dry and flip to another page and begin a new masterpiece. i am excited to see the book get filled right up with colourful pages. at with point, maybe before, i'll make a cool book cover for it. perhaps give it to his daddy for father's day next year. or just keep it for the archives. love this already.
