Finished Pages for Artfest Fatbook





So I finished the pages for the 2008 Artfest Fatbook swap. I collaged and painted an original painting from a sketch I had done several years ago passing the time at an art fair. Then created a complimentary simpler painting with all my contact info on it for the back. Then dual sided color copied them and cut them all out and then... embellished one edge, with a whole adventure of staplers, sewing machine, grommets, and hole punching. I ended up liking the stapler best but there was a definate learning curve to get the look I wanted. The concept of the Fat book is that everyone makes a single page and then they are collected and some amazing person covers and binds all of the books. Along the outside edge of everyones pages is a smorgasbord of dangling fibers, charms, and in my case leaves and feathers. I can't wait to see the finished project. This is my first time participating in this swap and it was a lot of work on top of all my other commitments in life, but I am sure it will be well worth it. I will post pics of the finished project when I get my hands on it... yippee...
