As promised, here is my wrap up of all the things I created during the month of November. You can see each of the photos from top left to bottom right how each day developed. I will also post it on my Previous Collaborations page.
Although I normally sew a few quiltlets and create handmade books from recycled products, this November was mostly about finding ways to decorate book covers. It became an obsession and I haven't tired of making them yet. Of course, I still love to make quiltlets, but for now, you're going to see a lot more of my altered and decorated book covers. Of course, I eco-dyed some fabric, too.
I cleaned up my herb garden and cleaned and organized my basement, which were not exactly art, but they were artful and necessary.
Once a week I hosted T Stands For Tuesday, and on the 2nd of the month, I host Second on the 2nd. Feel free to join us with your post that you want to spotlight, too. And for those who normally play, now is the time to dig a post out for Wednesday.
This is my completed November calendar. I tried to pay homage to Paris, but I'm not much of a stamper. I had some card stock I had painted autumn colors, then cut it and collaged over the pieces with snow inspired tissue. I did this because we had an exceptionally warm autumn which turned deadly late Thursday when an ice storm hit my city.
December is ready to be filled in, and as usual, I'll decorate it depending on what is happening in my world at the time.
Thanks for visiting today, and even though AEDM is officially over, I hope to stay in touch with several of the people I visited daily. As always, your support of my projects touches me deeply.
