Focus.....


I've joined an altered book club. 
There are 20 of us that meet once a month at the Paper Crown Paper Arts store in OKC.   We all chose an old book to use.  Each month we exchange books and create a special page for one another.

A theme or color is chosen.  The month of March it was Turquoise.  With that you are sent on your way to create whatever you would like for that month's book partner. 



My book exchange partner for the month of March was Debbie (on the left above).  She and  Lisa are great friends and even bigger supporters of the classes at Paper Crown.
  


Using turquoise colored retro camera and photo album as a theme.  I chose to use photos we had taken after classes of them and their classmates. 
As she opened the book, she saw a camera where you pull slightly on the photograph and it slides out as if it were a Polaroid pic.  And on the right side a photo flip book of them at various classes. 


You can't believe the talent in that one room.  During the evening we have a show and tell.


Each one of us takes a turn showing the book we worked on during the month.  Sharing any techniques or tips we might have for what we had done to complete that months book pages.

There are more WOW moments in that room....amazing what these talented people create each month.


 We are all becoming fast friends and learning a little more about each other at the book gatherings.
 There are several women driving as much as 3 hours to be a part of this creative group of people.


Each month I am going to try to share the book I worked on along with photos of the pages of my book done by others.  Let me tell you they are Fantastic!!!

Thank you Cindy for pulling together such a wonderful group!!
