Calendar





Times are running so fast,there's the second month of the year nearly finished.Time to finish Linda Koch's calendar pages for the RR we both are in at MMCA group.
That's a really funny RR and after a year each of us will get back a very huge calendar full of artwork from very talented artists.
These are some of the pages for Linda I like best

flowergirl boxes



Those are my first trials to create something for selling on a craftsmarket in june.I Feel a little bit unsure,wether they would sell here.But I will give it a try,as my friend,who is a glassbeadmaker,insist I should accompagny her.
But this first 2 will stay with me,as I really like them and don't want to give them away.

first altered cabcard



As I am off from work for 10 days,I have plenty of time to play around.So I tried my first altered cabcard this morning.
It looks better in reality,because on the scan,the lace and metal fork and spoon don't show so good.
This card will be for Merel's journal,in which I had fun to work the last days for the journal RR on club creativegroup.
The first picture is also for her book.

Private journal RR

I just have finished a private RR with Deryn Mentock www.somethingsublime.typepad.com.As each of us likes the work from the other,we decided to swap a journal.Mine is actually in hot Texas,to be filled with wonderful artwork.I can' t wait to get it back,to see the great art in reality and to have a souvenir fro m an artist I really admire.
These are some pages I did for her:



Deryn's book has wooden covers,held together with fabric spine.Inside she did mostly altered photograps of cemetary angels,a theme we both love.Her book is very colourful and interesting ,because of the different techniques she used.Here are my favourites:
