On Paper Wings

When I first received Supria's book "On Paper Wings" in the post, I felt a little intimidated. After all, this is what Supria does. She is a mixed media artist. I was in awe of how she treated the pages. Such care and so much detail. Techniques that I haven't dared to try yet. This is, as you may recall my first venture into the altered book. The fact that Roxanne was the first artist to work in Supria's book made me a little tense as well. After all, this is what Roxanne does. She is a mixed media artist. Roxanne's pages in the book are very creative and textural also. I enjoyed working on these pages and looked at them as a challenge. I'm quite happy with how they turned out, even though I did have a bit of an issue with the paper wrinkling up on me. The book is coming together as a wonderful tribute to Helen Keller with all the texture and the wonderful scent of beeswax.


  1. WOW...I love these images they are inspiring and very articulately written re: your process....I love that the paper I love texture and really believe things happen for reasons as gifts from the universe..can't wait to see this great testimony of Helen's life...thanks for sharing your creative gifts in this book of mine..with gratitude Supria

  2. What you've done looks beautiful Rita. Can't wait to receive the book and see in person!

  3. I love that you used beeswax. So appropriate with this tribute. Even a blind person would be able to enjoy the scent and the feel of the piece.
