Happy Saturday EveryOne!
I thought I would pop in and share my work table.
You know how over the summer I dyed vintage textiles?
and I have collected a few more...
(gosh I just love finding bits of this and that linens!)
I have been an admirer of the collaged lace book
that artist have been sharing online...
...two of the many wonderful artists are
They inspired me to begin my own vintage lace collage book.
(I love both these lovely ladies!)
and...while poking around a book store I had a lucky find...
Traci Lyn Huskamp of Red Door Studios wrote this book.
I did not know Tracie before, but after reading her book,
I can say she is a joyful soul!
Her book fit right in with my own love of nature and art,
and my dreams of vintage lace books.
Tracie's artwork is truly lovely,
you can visit her blog Red Door Studios and see.
I love how she paints birds.
and I believe she has a calendar out this year.
Yay for her!
I got started making the substrate book first...
(there are so many different ways to do a book!)
I still have to stop myself from cringing when I cut into vintage textiles...do you?
I found I was moving around many ideas
before I came to a final composition for the cover.
I also realize now that I should have planned the cover,
but maybe saved creating it for last, as it is bulky.
(this is a bit brighter blue than it is)
This is where I am so far with the cover.
I am still musing over it while I begin to lay out the interior.
The theme is Renew.
Thank you for stopping by!
...now back to putzing around : )
