Book-Art Nr. 1 'Behind Lock and Key' by Rose-Ann-Mary-K Book-Art Nr. 1 'Behind Lock and Key' by Rose-Ann-Mary-K
I am planning on doing a series of old books, and transforming them into art pieces, using different forms of paper-art. e.g. folding, cutting, sculptures etc.

This is my first *ever*.
The meaning behind it, is open for own interpretation.

Took me about 8 hours to cut.

Hahaha! I know right! :P
That was exactly how I felt when I did the first cut.
However; the book is old, dusty and never read anymore.. so hopefully this is a good enough excuse not to feel guilty.

at first, when I decided to do this, I wanted to make them all out of Harry Potter books, because they are so special to me, but then realised what I would do with them, and do something tótally against my beliefsystem.. it's like killing god. No, I couldn't. ;)
