The New Year is off to a creative start....

On Wednesday afternoon we gathered for the Bookies planning meeting a chance for members to decide what they would like to learn, what they are able to share and a group direction for the coming year.

A suggestion was put forward that I show people the process that I use to Art Journal, this suggestion snowballed into monthly prompts for a group of single sheets that Birte will show us how to bind into a book later in the year.

January's prompt - If I had wings.......

to be completed by the February meeting.  Even if you are out of town feel free to follow these prompts that I will be posting.  Just use a readymade book, or alter a book...if you feel the urge to join us please comment with a link to your page for everyone to see.  This process is always fascinating because it is so interesting to see how different people tackle the same topic.

Birte's single sheet coptic binding - stay tuned for the workshop date

Artist Trading Cards - another one of those snowball affairs...January two years ago Linda S. suggested we swap an ATC once a was only meant to be for a year but Fiberians fell in love with the process and below you will see the January 2011 cards.
