On the inside cover on some textured paper I printed everyones name, with their blog names and a name of an artist they mentioned on their postings.
On the first page I did a haiku with some sandhill cranes.
On the back of the page I did what I call a big brush painting with a little sparkle.
This is how it looks opened to the first page.
The way I put it together is with those little brass plated fasteners that open in the back like a butterfly. All you have to do is make a tiny hole in the 1" at the side and stick them through your page to include it. I hope this isn't a problem for anyone. If the little jewels come off in shipping don't worry about it. I have more. I will be removing the fasteners when it comes back to me and binding the book anyway. I thought about removing the feathers on the front so shipping might be easier. Then again you might want to see it. I will send it as is. If it pops off during shipping just stick it into the mailer and send it on. I will deal with it when it gets back to me. All right. I am ready for the next one. Send er on... Cheers.
P.S. If you have forgotten what size... the page should be 9"wide x 7" tall. This will give you an 8"x7" space for your art with a 1" left tab to bind with. Have fun ladies.
