Saturday brought a fun little "junk" book with Gaye Medbury, called "Stitched and Tied, Too." We used all sorts of things...tags, vintage scraps, envelopes, and even a little cloth bag! Gaye pushed our creativity a bit...we began with plain white paper for our covers. We arted up that paper in various ways - paint, ink, stamps, collage, etc. The point? You don't need fancy paper to create something 'Oh so cool!"
These are two of Gaye's samples; my own book has been constructed but not yet decorated. You'll see it sometime soon. These are mostly vintage in appearance; mine is a bit more funky and colorful? (Not surprised, are you?)
Gaye's aura attracts all sorts of goodies when she haunts estate sales and yard sales. She shared some of her own images as well as providing a little goodie bag. Beads and baubles were available to use...what a wonderful and generous teacher! See the little blue squares? Microfiche!
I'm going to go work on my book a bit...day 4's adventures coming to a place near you very soon!
