I am hosting an "Altered Books Revisited Round Robin" this year that is pretty exciting. Our group consists of 6 artists/friends who have worked together exchanging altered books in the past. The group includes Shauna Palmer; who introduced me to altered books back in 2001, Ann Peterson; whom I have done many exchanges with before and whose art I can't get enough of - she truly inspires me, Linda Bean; who came highly recommended to me - she has shared art with others in the group previously and is a awesome addition, Cynthia Weed; whose wild and wonderful art I have always totally enjoyed, and Pilar Pollock; whom I have known and shared art & writing with for perhaps 7 years? I just love her style.
You can check all the pages we've recorded so far on a separate Blog: http://abr-rr.blogspot.com/ More pages will be added as the books pass through my hands or the artists are able to upload them. Above is a spread I did in Pilar's ROCK STAR themed AB - what a great theme & book! This page is about a band called Pearl Harbor & the Explosions! I copied and reduced a record album I had from the late 70's, added black & gold marbled paper spillin' off the edge, water color crayons, and gold metallic pen and stamping. Like it? You'll find more pages of everyone's work so far on the ABR RR Blog!
