Well I am almost done with my project...some fine details are left, the last page (#11) and the front cover have yet to be done. I am pretty pleased with the project so far...what do you all think?
I hope everyone had a great weekend!
I have to scoot and get to work, but I wanted to share with everyone first.
Happy Monday to all,

Looks awesome, Heather! How much time did you have to work on it?? For some reason, I thought that you would be working on this for 6mos to a year...

Hey Cynthia,
I have been at it for about ten days now. It's a 30 day project...they put out the call to art, you get accepted, they send out the book to you and then a month later you turn it in. I, of course have a busy life and can't do a project over thirty days, I'd go I am doing it now and leaving myself some time to live with it, before it has to go to the show. Thanks for the feedback!

What do I think? I think it is fantastic. I would love to sit and explore your book in person. I feel there is so much more to the experience than what I am seeing here.

Wow this is really breathtaking. I love the distressed look of it. Makes me think of an old journal I just stumbled across. Can't wait to see it completely finished.
