AN ALTERED BOOK

This is the remainder of my altered book journey with my friend Lenna.http://creativelenna.blogspot.com/ These are the pages that I finished before I sent her book back to her. Lenna and I have worked in each other's books now for literally years, mostly because I work incredibly slow, that is, I have too many things on my plate, so I worked on it too infrequently, and Lenna was always ever patient and gracious. I thought I would share.


Lenna's book theme was nature and trees

A beautiful quote that Lenna sent me

A picture my brother took in Italy of an olive grove









I think this is my favorite page, it has a gorgeous clip of a forest with light pouring through and I added some vintage text and tissue, I  love the texture and movement.


This was an amazing learning experience and journey and I am grateful to a wonderful friend and mentor, Lenna Young Andrews who has taught me so much of what I know as a collage artist! Thank you to all of you who visit and encourage my work in all mediums as well!

Dear Sharon, I apologize for not finding this post before now. I am not so good at following blogs these days and usually later when I get to my favorite ones!

It is hard for me to express just how much your beautiful art in my nature-themed book means to me... you really speak to me with what you created. And please do not worry that we were working on this for a couple of years!! It does not matter that it took a long time, it is our journey in it that matters. : ) I would not trade this journey or the time it took for anything else, it makes it very special. Thank you for your very kind words, you are very talented in collage work as well as jewelry and I am so glad we can share our art & love. xo
