Sketch Book Cover is DONE!
Okay, I've taken on another challenge! Katey of "Kate's Corner" (see her blog in my side bar and visit to watch the progression of ten books being made by ten artists in a round robin fashion so that we each will wind up with a book with our own art on page one, and each of the other nine artists on the nine pages there after! The first step was to make a cover for our own book, which we will keep at home until our book comes back to us (nine artist pages richer) in however long that takes... My cover is made on a piece of black foam board. It is 9" across and 6" tall. I used ribbons by Vivian that I got from her ETSY store to embellish it. The central piece I machine felted using lace, ribbons, wool roving, felt scraps, thread nest, cotton fabric, and silver twine! I hung a silver metal sign from that that says "CREATE" on it. Something I picked up from Susan Steins' Quilt Shop in Minnesota last summer. I hand stitched some silver metallic threads to match the silver twine across the top. And I love it! My Cover!
