It's difficult to believe that the month of July is almost ended. Between the studio, classes, Altered book club, visiting relatives and trying to fit a little art into the spaces in between, July seems like a blur. One very exciting thing is that our local Altered Books club has started a year long altered book round robin! The club started about 8 years ago at Luna's Memories with only 2 or 3 of us meeting once a month. The club has now grown to 12 or 13 active members. This will be our largest project to date and the very thing I have been waiting for! It's taken us 8 years to get to this point and I really want to create my best art for everyone's book. I will try to keep a monthly journal of my year long adventure into the world of the round robin for your entertainment and my sanity.
As for classes: I will be giving one last Altered Book #4 class this Saturday the 31st at Art Max in Seaside. Here are the details:
