I want to thank Sue Cervantez, whose book I recently worked in for our 2009-2010 Altered Book RR. This Round Robin is hosted by Sallie Rodman and I was invited to join the group this year. Sue's book is the first book to come my way. I love to share my art and how i create it as i work, but the group had not done that in the past. So, when finishing her spreads, I asked Sue how she felt about that. She encouraged me to share my art in her book online . . . but she will not peek at it until it comes home, because she likes being surprised seeing her book stuffed with art when it returns to her!

Thank you Sue, for saying it was okay to share!! Above is a cropped portion, close-up of one of the pages i did in Sue's book. If you click on the photo it will bring you to a few more scans of my work in Sue's book and lots of description on what i did. This is the first time in a long time I have worked in an Altered Book. The very first time i altered a book was back in 2001, with a number of exchanges since, but none for about 2 years now. I am so grateful to Sallie Rodman for inviting me. Yours creatively, lenna young andrews, September 22, 2009.
