Fiber Junkies Making Books, Pt 2

Yesterday Fiber Junkies met at my house for Part 2 of making books. Carol does the most wonderful and creative job of making books and left us all once again inspired and excited for more. Carol has a very spontaneous approach to her art which is fun to watch. Very few things make it to the wastebasket, most become potential trims etc for her books - they are wonderful!
All of us had worked on our papers since the last meeting; they were all so interesting to see.
This one was one of my favorites.

This is Patsy's cover, if you know Patsy, she loves leaves and feathers and uses lots of them in her work.
Nancy's cover was great, loved the lace at the top The small frame she created herself, the leaves etc.

This next page was one of Vals. Val makes many beautiful hand made papers; the beige paper has been embossed with a Sizzix machine and lace added on the edge.
On this page, Val used the cover of a thank you note and stitched lace along the sides. What a great way to recycle those beautiful cards you don't want to toss but wind up keeping in a box.

What a great, fun and inspiring day. Next month, we're doing a field trip to one of our favorite fabric outlets, we call it "dumpster diving" for fabric as that's about what it is.
