Altered Book Round Robins

I am participating in a small Round Robin of altered books with other artists. I am sharing my work on the books so far.

What’s a Round Robin? It’s a collaborative effort to create a piece of work, but everyone is not together in one place doing the work. So for altered books, the each of the five artists in the group picked a book and theme, prepared the book and did a few page layouts. Then she mailed it to the next person on the list, and that person works in the book and mails it on. Kind of like “pay it forward” only with art. It’s a nice small group that evolved from an online class we all took.

It is really fun and exciting to be involved in a group of talented women who produce such amazing work!

So today’s slideshow includes my work from two books. First up is my book, whose theme is “Artists on Art,” and it features famous artists quotes and images that are done in the style and tone of the artist.

The second images are from my work in Amy O’Brien’s book, which has a theme of “Britianna” and is about all things British. I did a layout with pockets and Queen Elizabeth II dollies in the pockets, along with some Queen playing cards with quotes for QEII. The second layout is a tribute to the current Dr. Who, the sci-fi Time Lord who is a big hit on the BBC. There is a fold-over panel of the Tardis (his time machine, so to speak) and it opens to show the inside of the Tardis. It’s bigger on the inside! (That’s a little bit for the Whovians out there.)
