Another Hand AB spread

"30 Days have September, April, JUNE . . . ." I can't believe June has flown by and I still haven't started several projects I promised myself I'd have finished by this time. So I'm off to the studio this week to catch up on catching up. I'll be posting a spread from my AB class each day this week. And maybe I'll get some breathing room along the way.

This spread used several pages from old books, including a day planner, a real ledger sheet, a German text book, and a German music book. I swiped oil pastels on the pages and around the central image to tie the ledger to the hand. The teacher's planner was dyed using leftover Rit dye. Thanks to Cindy for the German Scrap and Carol B for the heart and word.
