Unfortunatly we had to make a decision yesterday to put to rest one of our beautiful dogs Coco. He has been ageing for quite some time, but over the weekend he went down hill far too fast. We are so saddened, but happy that he wont suffer anymore. Thank you Coco for the last 14 years of joy, protection, happiness, laughter and companionship to us. We miss you..

I used an old book. Burnt a big hole using a butane torch and concentrated the flame just in the centre of the paper pages to make if you like a niche.. I inserted an old tin type photo of a young girl, a few dried jasmine flowers and used Utee that had been cooked for approx 10 hours until it went an amber colour. I poured the melted Utee in until it was all covered. Then I embellished the book with aged brass mesh, a few parts from an old type writer and dictionary paper quote.
I love the look of all these burn pages all stacked upon another.
Aged fine copper mesh was used here on the left, it almost looks as if its still on fire with its coppery hues.
Jump on over to Aussie Dares to see more wonderful artwork created by the girls.
