For some reason, every time I schedule something that requires me to drive north for an event, this happens.
I went to Gaye's first, then we drove to southern Indiana where our altered book class was taught by the engaging Ehren Reed, recently moved to the area from San Francisco (click on her name to see her portfolio of altered books). This is her sample book, with long evening wear gloves used as the book closure (snaps hold them closed). I should have taken more pictures, because she made good use of zippers, transfers, and other techniques.
At the end of the day, as we walked to the car, I noticed this building at the other side of the parking lot. Great way to put up your address!!
Over the last few days, I have been re-visiting altered books that I had worked on years ago. I decided I should play in them some more as I get time.
I have one book with drawers and a zipper in it, and also a book by Einstein. It was fun to look through them again and think about more things to do with them!
Hope you are all doing something fun!!
