Concord group - atcs



Yesterday I met with the group formed by Margaret in Concord, to make and swap ATCs. This was my second time to go, and I'm hooked. Bobbi went with me so I introduced her to Margaret and Sue and Paulette from last month's meeting, and we met some new gals this time, including Peggy Gatto (yes, the real Peggy G). We had fun sharing our art and then doing an ATc making activity where we pulled slips of paper with a technique to use on our cards. After using it, we would pull another one, and keep on doing this until we felt the piece was done. One visitor came and blew us away with her new artwork. I didn't photograph it because it is totally unique and she hasn't had a chance to show it around yet. But, I did take a picture of her shoes. Chel from ZNE popped in also. The other picture is part of the group. Great fun to get together to make art with others.

the great unveiling ----- ta da!










Don't ask why, but I've been working on 8 fabric books at one time. So, things came along slowly as I moved from one to another. Would I do this again? I hope not. It seemed to take forever to get anything done, with all these unfinished projects strewn about. Here are some random pictures from the new books. Ta da!

Small fabric book series






I've been working on a series of small fabric covered board books with the theme of birds. Because I use quotations, I'm not sure if they aren't really small philosophy books, and the birds are secondary. Most of my books take philosophical turns - hmmmm........ what does that say about me?

Here are a few pictures scanned from a couple of them. I'm sorry the scanning doesn't seem to pick up the details, it may be because there are several layers - things go out of focus.
