I’ve finally started my first AB round robin. The host choose mini board books for us to alter. She bought the books, gessoed all the pages of all the books, labeled who was to alter which page and mailed them all out to us. Wow, that is a lot of work! And to top it all off, she sent us all little packs of wonderful paper scraps. Thanks so much Maggie!
My group’s books have little windows on all the pages. I decided i didn’t want to use the window on the cover so i covered it with cardstock. Also, i was having a hard time figuring out how to use the windows and then i realized that i could but shipping tags in windows. Well, the spreads just flew together after that.
I’m focusing my spreads on the theme – ‘The Power of Wings.’ Here are some pics of my book so far.
Here you can see the front cover and the tags sticking out the top of the book.
This is the tag that goes in the first window pocket. I think i might put a little message to the other alterers in my group on the back of this tag.
The first spread is about independence.
The tag for this spread reads – “Now she knows she can take care of herself.”
This is the last spread in the book. The ones in the middle will be completed by the other members in my group.
Finally, this is the tag for the last spread. It reads – “I am my own fairy godmother.”
