spring secrets


i am working on a spring secrets round robin book exchange with four other artists, lilia, melissa, kari , and cassondra . our books will travel around to each artist to work in, then return home at the end of june. my inspiration came all in one day when i found the carved book box from italy (see earlier post for the before picture) and a lovely book called 'a bouquet of flowers'. i picked up both for $1.00. inspiration comes in small packages sometimes. to get us started before we start sending our books out we did a little spring trade. here is a close-up of what i am sending out to the gals.

this darling little art-to-go portfolio was made by the piggy story. i am making a little covered book to go with the crayon folio for my little artist. she can't wait to get her hands on those brand new crayons. magic.

I love this little niche you have cut from the book. I am working on a new rebuilt book a la Pam Garrison and I am thinking of cutting a hole in it too. I love how the holes cut in my ArtFest project turned out. I look forward to seeing more from your RR.
