The Electric Heart

I almost forgot to post anything today. Yesterday Dana and I were unable to work together, so I spent the day working on projects that have a short due date. I can't show them yet, but all will be revealed soon.

One thing I did finish and can show is this spread in my Hands AB. I started with a sheet of the yummy deli paper for a background, which I never got around to doing anything more with. To that I added a magazine image that I sewed a piece of deli paper in the shape of a heart to, and added the beads. They actually dangle below the book, but this is how they scanned. I still have to add the title, but I was in a bit of a hurry to have something to post. This is turning out to be one of my favorite spreads, except I now believe I'll add more red to the background. It's a bit too pink for the image and the fabric beads.

Today's blog of choice is Jeb's Junky Trinkets. Don't let the name fool you. His art and photography are definitely NOT junk. They are true works of art.
