I have been anxiously awaiting my first book in the round robin I'm holding. Vesna, who is to send to me, has been busy with nursing school (you go, girl). She emailed me that she'd recently been inspired, gotten her book done and it was on the way to me.
It arrived yesterday, and I was totally blown away! She sent this mamzingly embossed leather photo album. It's small, only about 4 x 5 inches. The cover was sweetly tied with some string and a bell.
Inside are these amazing pages, filled with layers of papers, old photos, mica, paint, and copper findings. The first two pages are the poem. Vesna was inspired by (she asked to use a poem, rather than lyrics- same thing, right?)
Each of the players will have an folded insert to play with. Two inserts are blank, and one was made with an old envelope.
The rest have been started by Vesna. She sent instructions that we can deconstruct the pages as we wish, and add whatever we like to the included photos.
How fun, right? I'm a little intimidated, to be honest. She is an amazing artist. I've been sketching ideas all day... I'll let you see when I'm done. Meanwhile, you can check out our Flikr group.
