Fighting Angel

A few weeks ago I featured an altered book called 
Barbara & Blanche Rose here on the blog.  

This one is a prequel, about their brothers during WWI.

I used an old book that I picked up at
 a Friends of the Library sale.

The title Fighting Angel seemed
perfect for a tale of the conflict.

It was fascinating to go through all my ephemera and
 pull out items relating to France and the war.

I enjoyed creating the various collages,

and trying out different techniques.

I have thought about revisiting these characters and doing one more book that would be set during the '30's and follow what happened to Barbara and Blanche-Rose with their writing and painting careers.


  1. Erin, you know I would love to look through this. The pages are so yummy. Rich. I've been so immersed in my own work I've missed out on much of what's going on with my favorite artists. This is awesome!

  2. Chris - It was lots of fun to create.
