For the skinny page exchange we create 4" x 8" pages for a different participant each month based on that person's theme, while someone else creates a page for us. When the swap ends this spring, we'll have about 15 skinny pages we can bind into a collaborative book! Linda's theme is "summer" - her favorite time of year. She said, think beach, vintage, nature, birds, lace . . . . Here's is what I came up with for Linda! It is an all fabric page fused and glued with a piece of heavyweight Fast2Fuse in the middle for support.
I used real shells and a sand dollar I had gathered.
Some of the fabric I painted myself (in the summer!)
-the two strips tied together above
and the turquoise strip in the middle below.
The two photos in the middle of each page
were ones I took myself & printed on fabric -
those are my little black Crocs!
And there is real Florida sand sprinkled on here & there.
This page is especially for you, Linda K. I am so lucky to have your favorite season here in Florida most of the time now. I wanted to send you something to remind you of summer whenever you looked at it!
big hugs from lenna!
