The cover of Lee's altered book for the Lyrical Interpretation Round Robin and I love it! Lee is our hostess for the round robin altered book exchange which is nearing an end. I will receive one more book and then it will be complete. I have loved doing this exchange - it has been such an inspiration. Thank you AGAin, and AGAin....
Inside cover and nifty tags for each artist to personalize and sign in - my tag is the woman's face and sienna paint, Marilyn's tag is the No Minimum tag with Fleur de Lis, and Tammy's tag is the Adore tag.
Another view of the artists tags for Lee's book. The tags slip into the pocket and contain the artists information on the back of the tag.
This is Lee's first page for her book setting the tone for the project. Love the pumpkin color and the sun interpretation with the golden metallic center.
My favorite element is the wirework figure - awesome work Lee! Lee found this great small 45 record album for her altered book and is a perfect book for the Lyrical Interpretation project.
This page is Marilyn's contribution to the altered book project with great use of color and imagery. See the skeleton on the left side of the page? I also really like the idea of using the blue ric rac.
Second page by Marilyn with vintage photo images, anatomical illustrations and more ric rac.
My addition to Lee's book with glossy transparency skeleton, the lyrics running along the border of the page and vintage illustration.
The skeleton has red heart with "smoke" curling out of the rib cage for the lyric - "curl like smoke and breath again".
Lyrics curl around the opening of the page and vintage skull from the 1920's.
Second page using Lee's pumpkin color with rib cage, transparency heart and lyrics - "down your throat inside your ribs" in the opening on the page.
I added Chinese symbols in the yellow circles from a vintage illustration of an anatomical heart.
Tammy's pages featuring tag, photo of a woman, feather, clock face, hands with the sun shining through and a flower.
Second page by Tammy featuring ribbon, tiny key, vintage photo and clock face.
Back cover of Lee's book repeating the same halos from the front.
I found this corset/back brace? in an antique shop and thought of Lee's book. I included it in the package for Lee to incorporate into the project if she likes it..... I think with some scissor work, paint and embellishments it could be a possibility.
