Another fun altered book.....

This month I have the pleasure of adding my artwork to Connie's book!  Connie lives in Washington state, her altered book has traveled to Laura (who, also, lives in WA) to Corinne who lives in Southern Oregon to me, also, in Oregon....from here it heads to Louisiana.

IMG_1037Connie choose this book with a perfect title to use for the theme of the book's art......Dreaming While Awake!

IMG_1038she, also, owns this cool stamp!

IMG_1039 The numbered envelopes contain a tag for each participant to fill in their information i.e. name, e-mail address, date, etc.

IMG_1041 One of the opening pages.......followed by this beauty.....

IMG_1042They aren't  signed but I'm certain Connie did this piece and the one below, too...........

IMG_1043This is so cool, the door opens to reveal......

IMG_1044    this awesome insert!  Do you dream in black and white or color?

IMG_1045A page that is folded into triangles and opens to reveal this sentiment.....

   IMG_1046 This is Laura's beautifully artful touch of Zen.........

IMG_1048Corinne does amazing design work using primarily fabric and stitches with touches of torn sheet music and Greek Goddesses !

IMG_1049Continuing on with the "Dreaming While Awake" theme, I created these pages............

.....using many keys and a list of dreams!

Maybe, it's because I've always been a day dreamer but the inspiration for these pages came relatively easy for me, which is not always the case, trust me.....so I'm ready to mail this book on and I have three more weeks before the deadline.  Hopefully, inspiration will "strike" again and I will complete another set of pages! 

Next week, we have relatives arriving from Sweden for a week...so I'll be doing lots of fun stuff.....I just don't think art will be one of them!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for posting the pics!! I absolutely LOVE keys :) It's so fun to watch things come together! I know what you mean about 'finishing' a book early. Yes, please feel free to continue to play if the mood strikes you!
