My word this year is completion. I really hope to finish some of the projects I’ve started, and also use some of the fabric I’ve created. I love all of the surface design techniques, but I need to use some of my stash! So here is my very first completed project and just in time for Valentine’s Day!
Last year, a group of the Art Girls under Teresa’s guidance decided to make Valentine Chunky Books. The plan was that we would each make 15 pages, and then when everyone was done, we’d exchange them. I worked on my pages at the Art Girls Getaway last February.
When Teresa collected all of the sets, she had a session where some of the participants bound them. I wasn’t able to attend, so I picked my pages up later. They’ve been sitting in a bag since then and I decided yesterday to get them out and add a cover.
The cover is a piece of canvas I painted years ago. I added some watercolor art I also made a long time ago. I added a book ring to bind it. Easy peasy, but at least now it is finished!
Here are some of the pages made by the group. All of our pages are two sided.
What a fun project and it’s nice to have it finished for the upcoming Valentine’s Day.
One down and many more to go!
Nice job, Lynda! There were a few murmers @ the Mixed Media Club about doing a Halloween chunky book. I’d love to do it again, especially for Halloween, but this time I wouldn’t want to be “in charge” of collecting and distributing…I got to be quite a nag to some people who tended to procrastinate!

Thanks T. I didn’t like my numbers – could have stamped them but didn’t feel like getting the stuff out. It’s a big job to herd all of us, for sure! Maybe someone else will want to be in charge. How about the ones murmering? 🙂
So charming. I adore this. xox
Corrine, Thank you!
Hi Carolann, Thanks. Kind of gets me in the Valentine’s Day mood.
