Yosemite Falls Mixed Media Journal
In the last couple of weeks I have been working with many different surfaces for printing. This Yosemite Falls Journal was created with images that I had taken of the falls, manipulated in Photoshop and printed in many different ways. In the next few posts I will show parts of the journal and explain the different processes explored.
This first set of pictures encompasses the cover This board book has been painted throughout with acrylics. Each set of pages is then covered with other elements. The photograph was taken of the falls in April of 2005. After manipulating the photograph in Photoshop, it was printed on Arial Paper. The paper is coated with white matte precoat from inkAID. The print has been layered with dyed cheesecloth and several sheets of hand dyed paper, sewn together and glued to the front of the board book.
The smaller stack of images hanging from the top of the front cover are 24 - 2" x 3" eclectic depictions of Yosemite Falls.
