Pulp Redux Chapter 3
I was on my way to drop off the kids to school today when I passed the courier...and guess what he delivered? Alicia's book! Yaay! I had a feeling he would and could hardly wait to get back! It's hard to open a parcel slowly and carefully when you're just about beside yourself with excitement and joyful anticipation!
Below: The pages that will become my spread in Alicia's book. Watch this space!
The theme for this book is "The Museum of Forgotten Things." Obviously I don't have anything done in it just yet but I have been madly brain storming and I think I know where I will go with this already.Alicia started a story with characters (the main character Hester, is woman scorned, she does something terrible and then spends her life riddled with guilt and burdened by the secret.) and Debrina has carried the story on (Hester died at the grand old age of 97 and Deb's has revealed one of Hester's other secrets and displayed some of the treasures kept by Hester until her death...she was a soft hearted romantic behind the guilt...) and that's where I come in! But first I t have to be disciplined and get back into my collage groove! The ICE deadline is not far away and I certainly don't want to miss out!
Today has been a GREAT mail day...not only did Alicia's book arrive but so did these lovely artworks from Moon Mama! Jen was my partern in the Cards swap organised by LaWendula. You may remember the altered cards I sent her? These are lovely wood and paper creations about the size of an ATC. Just lovely! (No pun intended!) I need to go and find a link for Jen's blog...
I've also been sticking to my art goals for the year, the top pic is my bead stash, some are hand made by moi, the rest are mostly gifted or gleaned from a second hand shop. The silvery-grey pendants and beads were made from modelling clay last night while I spoke on the phone. Easy as that! I got bored very quickly rolling balls for beads hence the heart pendants! These will look great dressed up with a little paint or threads and fibers. I think it's something to work on anyway:)
