The other day I excitedly opened the package that arrived from Lynne Hoppe,
which I knew contained her book for our collaboration.
I opened slowly, savoring what greeted my eyes -
like having creamy rich dark chocolate melting in my mouth :)
There were a couple of extra treats wrapped and tucked along side the book.
One of Lynne's new paper clay brick people - so charming,
you can hardly believe, a beautifully painted paper tag, and
a very cool lava rock heart, wrapped in a sparkly painted
paper doily,which has been further transformed
and I'm sure you will see reappear,
at some point along the way.
These new treasures have already found a
home in my studio on my collection table,
among my other objects of inspiration.
Now, on to the book.
I spent a little time playing on the covers today.
Here you see the before, with Lynne's layer alone,
and after, with my layer added. Who knows how
many more times we'll add to these covers!
Lynne hasn't received my book yet - I've been a bit delinquent on delivery.
Sorry Lynne - it'll be there soon, I promise!
