I've been busy for the past 2 weeks dyeing lace, taking pictures, cropping picture and getting them ready for the shop so be sure to stop in within the next week for lots of pretties. You can be sure that the Give-Away prize will have a few purty pieces of lace included in it.
Seems I can never make a post without posting some pictures so I thought I would show you my first attempt at making an Altered Art Book. I belong to the Artsy Fartsy group and we decided a few months ago to work on an altered book together. Each one of us had to make our own front and back covers and a full page. We then pass the book around so that each member (6 of us) creates a page for our book. At first I was "oh no, now what do I do?" Well I thought about what it was that I loved so decided to name my book "For the Love of Lace". Each page I created has some of my dyed pieces incorporated in it and enclosed is a note asking the girls to do the same on the pages they make in
My book was made by tearing out some of the pages of a 1970's Dictionary. I ripped out just enough to make room for the thickness of each new page. Then I divided the pages into about 6 scetions and glued the sections together giving each person about 1/4" to play with.
