This was one of the series of books I made with the tie-dyed/marbling technique cloth as a base. You can see the faint impression of some of the collage background papers, for example, the joss paper.
After I had the rainbow tie-dyed/marbled cloth with the colored paper back, I laid strips of masking tape over it and began to layer colored washes. Since I did this for all six of the rainbow series book covers, they all kind of look similar. I used my linoblocks of birds to put some detail, and when that proved insufficient, I used black acrylic ink and my commercially purchased stamps. For this one, I finished by adding some coins that I had purchased in bulk a few years ago to make belly-dancing costumes (before I stopped belly dancing.)
