Detail of Gypsy Sun — Mixed Media Altered Book by Hilary Blackwood

Gypsy Sun is a carved book mixed media book assemblage. I begin with a hand sawed piece of book. I sealed the pages, then I carved the layered Gypsy Sun design by cutting through the pages a layer at a time and sealing it. I then collaged the book piece to a stretched canvas that had been painted. Rusted nails have been applied to the sides resulting in a quirky and unique piece of folk art. 

The stretched canvas base measures 5 inches by 4 inches not including the nails.
