Mission Accomplished...!!

My "El Dia De Los Muertos" themed G8 Moleskine
is now complete...Yippeeeee!
Above are the introduction pages...
along with the routing order of my book...see candles.
You can click on images to enlarge...:)

Here are pages 1 and 2.
Here is my full 3 page spread: pages 1,2, and 3.
Being just a "wee bit" overzealous
my art seemed to have "mysteriously" crept
onto half of page 4. Hmmm...:)
Juli, in Canada, will share page four with me
adding her own artwork based on the same theme.
I gave ATC prints as a thank you gift to all participants.
Each person will get 2 prints...
one of each style shown.
Here is the fun back pocket of my Moly...
this is where each artist will sign in.
The guideline booklet is just in case anyone needs
reference sources or ideas for my theme.
It will be tucked snuggly into the back pocket
for safe keeping.
The book and the gift ATCs have their own separate little pouches.

Ta Daaaa!
Everything is all wrapped and ready
for a final blanket of bubble wrap
to protect her on her long postal flight to Canada.
She was mailed out yesterday...
You know, I actually feel like I am 10 pounds lighter!
Now on to Cathy's book...her theme is "Sea Caves"...
My imagination
is already going like gangbusters!:)

"To be yourself in a world
that is constantly trying to make you something else
is the greatest accomplishment."

This is a stunning beginning. I can't wait to see your book completed. WOW. I can also see sea creatures floating across the coming pages. FUN.

Absolutely gorgeous work. Breathtakingly beautiful. How you were able to part with it is beyond me.
Praying it returns to you safe and sound with even more beauty on each subsequent page.

Seriously one of the coolest things I have seen in a long while! I planned on working in my moleskine tonight. I just spilled diet pepsi in my gouche tray...wonder if that will change the paint? ha ha
