New Project to Share. . .

This one has a mouthful for a title -

The Form & Function of the Industrial Strength Woman

I am really loving this project, it was inspired by several different ladies who's work I admire. I have been watching some of the techniques they like to add in their projects and I have been wanting to try them for some time now. So this book is a "technique book" of sorts. It was a place to play and experiment and learn for me. It was a place to get out of my own comfy little creative box. I have no big plans for this book. I do not plan to add photos or write witty stories or favorite memories. I just plan on enjoying it for what it is.

There are lots of items from the hardware store in this book - which makes it quite noisy and heavy! But there are also lots of roses, corsets and charms which gives it that vintage and womanly feel also.

Each page is an adventure with all of it's moving parts and interactive items.

There are even pages that will surprise you - like this one!

You will not believe all of the materials we will use in this book. Some things you will be familiar with, but we will use them in an unfamiliar way. Some things you might never have thought about using in a handmade book?

I will be teaching this book at The Creative Quest on Saturday May 14th. It will be an ALL day class. The fee is $110. This class is not for the faint of heart. You will work every minute you are there if you plan on taking this home complete. This is not a beginners class, it is for the more experienced book artist. There are 5 spaces left in this class, so if you are interested in signing up please call the store right away so I can build a kit for you. When you sign up you will get an email from me giving you a list of tools and supplies you will need to bring to class.

I hope to see you there!
