Caroline's book has arrived!

Hi girls!

I know this is a little late, but as many of you know I have had an enforced blogging leave due to internet and computer troubles at home! Anyway, just wanted to let you know that my book made it home safely and I am thrilled with all the wonderful art you've been making for me. My colour and shape theme has really been a success - all your paintings, collages, textiles and foldings are a delight to view and handle! I now just have to find a way of binding it all together with my cover and first page and then it will be a delight to dip into from time to time. Thank you everyone! Joss it was a brilliant idea to gather us all together - thank you!

P.S. I still have Lolo's page to complete - does anyone know where her book is right now????

Last page for Marianne (my last page too)

When Sjimmie arrived here in London a few days ago, all the cats in the neighbourhood came over to play. They loved my wool (of course) and had such fun together.
I hope I send the right cat back to Marianne! (You are gonna love your book Marianne, it sings with fun, colour and joy.)
This is my last page of my last book.
It's been an absolute 'Blast' sisters.
Thanks you all so much for coming along with me on my journey. My book is here on my window sill where I can admire it each and every day.
Big hugs and kisses to you all.

This is my page for Caroline's traveling sketchbook. I wanted to try an Origami Envelope Fold for this page. I have never done much paper folding but I've always been intrigued by it. It actually was pretty easy.

I liked this particular fold because it allowed for a lot of little extras, like attaching more paper for secret compartments and more folds. Carolines theme was color and I think I have some here. I used a lot of materials for this collage. Paper party napkins, tissue, magazine cut-outs, paint and rubber stamps went into the making of this. So much fun.

I wish I could take credit for this beautiful design but it is really scrapbook paper. It does give me ideas for some new paintings, though. My page is the last to be done for Caroline so her book will be flying home to her this week.
