ALTERING BOOKS WITH LENNA




Here are some pages that I made in Lenna's altered book. Her theme is Nature, and I am really having a blast and a great experience working with one of the best! I forgot to scan the pages I made, so Lenna was kind enough to do it for me and send it to me. You can visit Lenna here, Creative Lenna, and see all of her amazing work, including paper and some beautiful fabric pieces! The best word that I have to describe her work is real beauty, she can find it in everything!
Lenna has another blog called Creative Swaps , where she hosts swaps with different themes and people from all over the world have participated. I did my first one last month, and the quality of the work involved is fantastic. Lenna is the best host ever, and super organized. I highly recommend it!
Now, does anyone have any extra time they can spare?!!

Thank you all so much!

Lenna Young Andrews said...

oh Sharon!
Your work is beautiful and you are so unaware of it sometimes, i think! The pleasure has been mine, sharing art and friendship with you. I wish I could give you more time, but must say you certainly make the MOST of what you've got!! I look forward to adding another spread or two to my Nature theme book & sending it back to you for more luscious sharon-art!

Great pages Sharon! Thanks for your VERY kind comments on my blog. USE the fabric, that's what it's for!

Cindy said...

Sharon, please let me know if you find a good source for spare time... I could use some too! I just don't know how you do it though, you pack in so much wondeful creativity with what little time you have in the evenings. Your altered book pages are just incredible...it's been fun to watch all of your swaps and collaborations from your ATCs, to calendars, to the altered books.

These pages are wonderful, Sharon. I especially like the tree and the nature theme speaks to me.
