yesterday i showed a glimpse of my book made in the paper bag swap. here goes
This is pages 2 and 3. I made page 2 and Janet page 2 and one side of her inset sticking out. this goes in the bag opening
Page 4 is janet, don't you love that tortilla maker. page 5 is the outside of Arlene's bag
Arlene pages 6 and 7 she did not glue down the bag flap completely so it forms a pocket and has a label pushed in it. great way to make it and i love hidden compartments and pockets. The texture of page7 is enhanced with dyed cheese cloth and to the right is a glimpse of her inset into the open bag side.
here is one side of Arlene's insert card. love those images
Now here is where the scanner was supposed to separate these two but it did not. the left is side one from Arlene and the right is side one from Janet on page 3.
this is the other side of Janet's insert. it really is lovely
here is page 8 Arlene and page 9 Janet. this is where scanning is a pain as it was too long for the scanner bed and I could not pull the tab with heart back where Janet placed a pocket and image under the tab and I cut off the last image. So have to look for a camera.
below is Janet page 10 and my page 11. I made an ofrendas (Sp?) to honor my mother who died this year. the food offerings are more like an English feast with a ham, lots of pastries and champagne. The yellow scrunched paper at the top represents the flower garlands and lots of candles to light her way to us. And what sort of celebration could we have without the sugar sculls. Very surprised that there were none available in San Antonio. It goes so well with Janet's dancing couple.
And finally my insert.
It really is a beautiful celebration of the hereafter.
