Skinny Book Swap

Here are my pages for the skinny book swap - it's been a while since I had to make a large number of anything, and I completely miscalculated the amount of time I needed to get through. But I survived, and I really enjoyed making the pages - I played a lot with my pastels to get the shading on the earthbound angel's halo, and for the edging. It's the first time I've used my own handwriting in my art, too - that was fun and a little bit daring. And Stephanie was invaluable help with trimming edges and cutting things to size. She's a mathematical whiz. *hugs* Thanks, Steph!

The back was just pure collage fun - I got to use some gold paper edging, and a lot of gold paint. Bliss!

I'm really looking forward to the rest of the pages coming in to me - then I can decide how I'm going to bind it, and make some covers.

Debbi and other Quilty Conscience people - I am so, so sorry for holding you up another week - the postcards are all but done, they just need edging. A thousand apologies for being such a slacker.

Hey Danielle!! Love the skinny book pages. And I really had the feeling that I needed to come look at your blog and lo and behold - there was a message for me!! I love it when that happens. Stay cool - the other postcards are safe and enjoying the suspense! PS You really crack me up.
