Book


This style book is learned from Julie Prichard's class. I liked it so well I made another.






It measures 51/2 x 81/2. With a mixture of collaged pages

and neutral painted pages for background beginnings


I kept the paints soft, but bright.












Here is a photo of the book standing open...(before the cover is added.

I love your book! I'm working on 1 like this, but the collage is taking soooo long! Your book is very inspiring!

hi Mary....
note to myself...must get back to people faster.....so here I am.

Great job on this journal. I'm really liking the soft colors. Very serene. I also love your fused glass dragonfly bowl. Beautiful!

I admire the freedom that you express in these pages - something that I could not possibly attempt. I have to KNOW what I'm going to end up with before I start. There's a certain amount of chance that comes with working with various papers, but I simply couldn't bring myself to explore like you have. Wonderful stuff, Mary.

This book is a wonderful work of art in itself. Love the soft palette of colors!

Wow, I love them! Great job Mar. When I am done with my lesson with Suzie Blu I will post it. Julie and Suzie are friends and I think they are both wonderful teachers. Talk to you soon, Vickie
