here i am.. finally in the blogging world. i kept putting it off thinking maybe blogging wasn’t my thing. i guess i will find out. do i have to be a writer? can i put my thoughts down in this “journal” like my other blogger friends? they seem to have this blogging thing down to a “t” . i don’t write in a journal now; i’d like to but i don’t. maybe this will help me just get my artistics thoughts down on “paper”. i will try to blog every week and share my art with you. .. and maybe a recipe or two along the way. i hope that you will like my art and you will share my blog with others. i would love to hear from you. so… here goes…..
i’ll start my first blog off with my recent project; a book i made for my niece who recently got married. first, i have to say the the front and back metal embossed covers of the book were inspired by donna downey http://donnadowney.typepad.com/; thanks, donna! from there it was gluing pages together, drilling holes, adding fabric, fibers, pictures, embellishments, you name it. i had such a great experience making this book.. i learned a lot along the way. you can see another book i did as a tribute to my father’s life after he passed, on my website here http://www.judysheart.com/alter-collage.htm
so, i leave my first post with pictures for you of my niece’s love book.
If you would like to see the entire book, you can view it on my Picasa Web Album, here http://picasaweb.google.com/judysheart/TaraJeremySJourneyBook?feat=directlink
