Chunky Book Swap Music
The October chunky book swap theme was music. I wanted to create it in paper and have a fold out. i printed out a figure of a conductor from something in my files of inspiration. (It was at this point i decided i really need to spend time, yet again, learning Paint Shop Pro). i ended up cutting and coloring the figure and scanning it in, then printing it out.
The fold out was painted old sheet music that sucked up the paint. it folds in to look like a book. the fold out represents the idea that music makes your spirits soar and spread your wings.
On the reverse side i made a fabric pocket and added the music tag with the information about the swap.
We had to make 11 of these and send them off 10 to Lorena in Hawaii and she sent us one from each participant.
This is the front, made before counting my music charms when I went to add them there were not enough for the other 10 cards.
The November swap is maps. Somewhere you had to use a map. I managed to go off on a tangent then later seeing some very inspiring ideas online.
