One project I took part in earlier in the year was a calendar to be sold in aid of 'Go Red for Women' an American Heart Association initiative. I am a member of the Lost Art Creations Yahoo Group and Terrie, the owner, organised this. The rules were that each calendar page had to contain at least one image and one 'pretty bit' from her Etsy shop and have a heart somewhere on it. I made the page for March:
A couple of months ago I took part in a gothic arch swap where 12 of us made double-sided pages to be made into a book. This was good fun - I got lovely and messy with the blue and black inks (which stayed on my fingers for a good two days, despite all my attempts to get it off, I think there was just tooooo much of it!). There were some absolutely gorgeous pages made by others taking part - mine is below:
Front. The gravestone flap folds down and the verse behind it is:
Step into the darkness
Say goodbye to the light
We live in an eternity
Where every day is night
I can't give credit to the originator of the verse as I found it on the internet - but I did think it went particularly well with the theme.
Oh to have some Copic Markers - I had one tiny Sharpie in the right colour purple/blue and wore it out doing all the pages, and the colouring in leaves a bit to be desired - it shows up worse on the photo than it did in real life!
