Cyber Fyber And New Project

Here's the postcard that I received from Susan Lenz of Cyber Fyber
I love the tone on tone look of it and the image.

Here's the one that I sent in exchange. I hope she likes it.

This is the start of my newest project. It's going to be a book for Rita, my mother-in-law for her birthday. It has mixed media pages and a felted fabric collage cover. So I started with the pages and covered them with a mix of tissue papers, paper towels, threads and scrim.

Here's another one. I made 20 in all. They are 9"x12" but will be folded in half. Now I need to cover the other side since these are dry. Then I'm going to add paint, more images, ink, and whatever else I decide to throw on the page. I think this project is going to take me a while.

Sharon of In a Minute Ago has set another interesting challenge for Take It Further in June. This months idea to think about is stories that are and stories that are possible. Hmmm... I've put that in my brain and it is stewing around. Haven't come up with anything yet but I'll let you know. Happy June!
