Altered Incense Box

I love incense, and some come wrapped in
beautiful boxes. I used this one and
altered it to make it one of a kind.

Altered Bookboard

I went to New Brunswick this summer to 
visit my family. Spent two weeks on the
shore of Beresford Beach, and was inspired
by my walks and collecting seashore treasures.
This is an altered bookboard, and the
first few pages. Shells drawing in my
moleskin with tinted charcoal, and cut up to size
to fit in my bookboard. It was place on
aseaside/beach inspired background with sunset.
Poem exerpt by William Blake on vellum reads

To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.
