I received an e-mail from Frances Shelby!
Frances, an artist, was in our recent classes at ASW/Catalyst.
She was kind enough to document her class project.
(I have a little "Mom & no Pop" advertising agency ...
I sometimes have overages that I bring to use in my classes.)
Frances envisioned a special use for ...
the pre-cut 4.5" x 6" paper pre-drilled with two holes.
She selected 40 matching pages and started to create.
Frances said, "I wanted to use some simplified accessible
aspects of the class techniques to create a memory
book/card to celebrate a 40th wedding anniversary in a way
that would appeal to the taste of the recipients"
Frances "chose a few words to describe the 40 memories.
I printed the memories using the computer with a table format
and a typewriter-like font in lower case.
I used torn edges for most of the project."
Please note I am not taking any credit for
this amazing series by Frances ...
rather, just thrilled to share and enjoy her creativity!
She "assembled the book with ribbon, leaving enough to
turn pages easily. It was an enjoyable exercise,
and I felt it was a good recognition of some
of the more significant events of their marriage."
What a wonderful, thoughtful original gift!
It's October 9th people, c'mon! ;op
A smile for Saturday ...
