Ouchie: an AB spread

For this spread, I echoed the bandage on the hand in the magazine image with real bandages for the frame. I began by laying down gesso, then added images from a supply catalogue while the gesso was still wet. The gesso was my glue, which I used both under and over the catalogue images. You can see that these catalogue pages are very thin, so they buckled under the water content of the gesso. This means they have a very low cotton content. Even though there was some buckle on the pages, this is one of my favorite spreads.
