These are my pages for Suki's book. Her book didn't have a theme but what I know of her is that she likes nature and she is a poet. I was attracted to this picture and its serenity. I started with watercolor paper and added the image and then added black watercolor pencil to the background and then a some water to extend the color of the photo. I then stamped on top of it with a scroll stamp. I was going to add some words but decided to leave interpretation to the viewer.
For the back I chose a poem by Mary Oliver. First I added a watercolor wash of blues and greens using paints this time and then wrote the poem on top of it. Then I stamped on the little dragonfly's. I really like the words in this poem.
Next I started work on Lynn's pages. I know that Lynn is an amazing quilter so I started my page by making fabric paper using strips of batik fabrics sewn onto some bristol paper. The I added the image and and several ribbons and then I got stuck. I love images of paths and doorways so then I added these words which seem to symbolize what the image means to me.
For the back of the page I took a piece of watercolor that I had painted previously. I added some images a little stamping and some words. I liked the calm look of this woman and she seemed to fit really well on the colored background.
I really like how these pages turned out. I am really loving working on these lovely artists books.
