Revised pages in my Hands AB

A couple of weeks ago, I started this spread. You can see it here if you missed it before.

You cannot believe how happy I was when I was going through my scraps a few days ago and found this paper. I thought I had used it all previously on this three page spread. I was practically jumping for joy and finally finished the six pages that this spread encompasses.

I used an Ott light to light these revisions, so it may be a bit hard to see. I removed some of the German text, because it was so brittle, it tore at the book seams when I closed the pages. To coordinate all the pages, I added some of the bubble paper and a painted red circle.

Here is the finished spread. I used more painted German text, bubble paper, and painted circles to lend cohesion to the piece. I lapped part of the image and bubble paper onto the back side.

Since I now had more of the bubble paper, I added it to the extension page. I also added some painted red circles to the extension and far right side, too.

Here is the extension page closed.

In case it was hard to see before, here it is when I scanned it. If you look closely, you will see all kinds of people like police, firefighters, teachers, etc, who are willing to lend a helping hand. When I saw the image, I knew it was right for the spread. I added the words "In the beginning" for a bit of cohesion to the story. I am calling this six page spread complete.

your "hands" book is becoming a marvelous creation...really outstanding spread here, and love the little stylized hand for luck. who says you are challenged with a knife? (and who has dental tools 'on hand' to cut with?!) and x-rays...and buttons...wonderful use of materials. You're pretty 'handy' seems to me...ok, sorry for the pun...Happy New Year! it will be so hard to write 2010...
