This past Tuesday was the take down for the Rosehill Show (Mukilteo, WA) that featured collages from the NW Collage Society. So that meant a lot of work needed to be done with my co-heart, Jan. Not only did we have to take the show down but we had to wrap all the art and return it to the rightful owners. There was a two hour window for the artists to pick up their work.
One of the artists had mentioned to me that she had a bunch of books on creating books and journals that she was culling and did I wish them. Of course I did. Suzan brought them to the show pickup. In exchange for the books I asked Suzan what would be a fair trade. We decided that I would design a journal to house ten or so 4 x 6 works that she had done but wanted to display somehow.
I wanted to create a journal to honor her works. So that very late afternoon I started thinking and doing mock ups of possilbe journals to fit the criteria. Suzan wanted an accordion and I had suggested pockets. Making pockets on two sides was the challenge. I successfully came up with a ten pocket accordion journal (pockets on both sides) which is now housing many postcards that I have received in the mail over the last few years. Soon Suzan and I will get together at her studio for instruction on how to create said journal. Too much fun! It was so much fun I am going to make a second one today! :-)
ok....I want to know how to do this too! I think there's a workshop cooking here...
Me too, but it may be too hard for me? I may be structurally challenged.
This is so cool and so you!
Terrific John love it- cleaver design- wish I could look at thos closer to see about making one
John! This is brilliant AND beautiful! What a wonderful idea! AND there are so many birthdays AND Christmas/Hanukah is coming up! ;-)
I really like the calm colouring and attractive, smart quality of it. Great.
