what's UP in the studio- Altered Books and a New WIP...

Here are some of the altered books I finished for the show a couple of weeks ago.  I've managed to list most of them in my Etsy shop.....I'm slooowly getting back to a normal schedule!

I used my current favorite technique of tearing and collaging printed images from my paintings
And the quote I used reads; " 'Tis moonlight, summer moonlight all soft and still and fair, the solemn hour of midnight" by Emily Bronte.

again the collage technique; did I mention it's my current fave?  I also made a bookmark to go with......

I also enjoy doing pop-ups and here's a close up of the seed envelope opened....

For my new painting, that I'm sketching out today I chose to use this image of a peony and iris....
So that's about all that's going on with me.  Have a great day!

Hi Stephanie,
Wow,I just got done reading the banana foster'ish waffles post...guess who needs to go buy bananas...:)
You know I love your books, they are the BEST mother's day gift!
Oh, tile the table , girlfriend! It's not hard,
you don't have to finish it in one day...then you will be addicted to hoarding broken bits too!

I can't wait to see your latest painting of the peony. I'm sure it will be beautiful.
I received one of your note cards in the mail from Lisa. Your work is more beautiful in person. Just gorgeous!
