This is the two-page spread in the altered book round robin with some local arty friends. There are eight of us in this round robin, which will be complete next June!

The theme is "Home" and the pages are cut from Fast2Fuse heavyweight, my favorite stiff interfacing.

The book rings are holding the pages together temporarily, just until the pages are all completed. Then I'll bind it properly.

The first spread is so important and it's fun to set the tone for the whole book. The background is rust-dyed fabric with painted surface details. There is a tag inside the pocket on the right and the quotation reads "Home is heaven for beginners. —Channing Pollock."

My studio associate Lori will work in it next. I can't wait to see the next book!

DH is out of the studio for coffee with a friend, so my job is to complete the DSL installation while he's gone. Elsie is helping and we're having a grand time. LOL!
