We have here a collection of Readers' Digest condensed books - as I'm sure many people do - some of which are duplicated (how did that happen?) or yellowing and falling apart.  They've been read to death, I like to believe.  I have been eyeing these beautiful yellow pages for a while, and when another book came apart the other day, I started playing and created this little book.  I plan to do some coptic binding on the spine, but it's so interesting without the binding that I just had to show off a little...  Watch this space for the finished 'journal' ;-)

..and thanks for watching my blog, till next time ..e^)

Wrapped up for another year..

And so we came to the end of another Art Swap.  This year we had 11 people taking part, making signatures for an art journal, sending them in, then I swap them out and send the packs back to each participant.

And in between sending in and posting out we had a small panel of judges selecting a winning entry, and family and friends voting on Facebook for their favourite signature.

The winning entries this year were by Cath Sheard - overall winner, and Maha Tomo - People's Choice.  Congratulations!!

The excitement is not over yet... the return signatures could now be bound into a real, one-off, unique and very special art journal in which each artist can now do their art journaling.  Photo's of these new journals will be posted on our ArtSwappers website as soon as I have them in my sweaty little hands..

Thanks to each and every one that took part in ArtSwappers 2012 - we're doing it again next year!!!!  Watch this space for the artist call.... till next time ..e^)
