Winter Themed Coolaborative Book Project
When Corrine from Dosfishes approached me about a collaborative book project I was intrigued with the thought of a three way book collaboration.
She explained to me that there would be three different books for the three of us participating.
The other gal is Lyle from Just A Note.
We would each do additions to pages so and would each end up with our own book that the other two had contributed to. Each page would be a collaboration and the theme was winter.
It was challenging to decide what might be the right amount to add to a page so that you would leave room for the others to do their thing.
This is just half of the pages I ended up with, I'm saving the rest for another post.
We also decorated a cigar box to keep out book in.
So I don't know if this is considered a Round Robin.
Perhaps it was a Triangle Robin.
And while I know that most of you have seen plenty of winter, you may have to endure some more winter imagery in these pages.
I would love to know which pages you like the best.
It was fun to guess which additions were made by whom,
each person displaying their own flavors and style.
Stampings by Lyle, I believe.
This one has more of a Corrine look to it.
I've had plenty of winter after all my years in Alaska and it was challenging
to portray what winter is for me now in Arizona.
This windblown crepe paper that was stuck to my ocotillo tree in the yard is perhaps
a better portrayal of winter rather than a classic winter snow scene.
Some pages were obviously all mine!
Swirls before Pine
I love the surface treatments on some of these.
I think this one was Lyle's Style.
I'll post some more soon if you can stand any more winter images!
