More Accordion Book Collaborations

I am doing a couple more accordion book collaborations-  The first one is with Julie Miller.  I am excited to see what she does with this start and I am excited to see what her book start will be like.

This next book start is with Suzanne Jarvis.  It is always fun to do these and then the anticipation of what she will add to this.  I also look forward to her book start.

Round Robin

I am in a Round Robin with 6 other wonderful artists.  Each month we do an 8 inch square for one of the group- at the end we will have squares from everyone including ourselves. These are folded in what is called the Turkish Map Fold.  They will be glued to one another and will make like a pop-up book. Here is a link how the squares are folded.
So this is the square I made for Jacki Long. In  older posts I showed an accordion book collaboration I did with Jacki.  The next square is the one I did for Michele Rawlings Unger.  The next one is the one I did for Irene Rafael.  Then the one I did for Brian Kasstle. And last is the square I made for John Arbuckle- this is the artist that organized this caper.   I forgot to scan the one I made for Thomas LaBadia and I haven't made the one for myself yet.

Directed Collage

I am doing the exercises in the book: The Trickster's Hat: A Mischievous Apprenticeship in Creativity by Nick Bantock- some of you may know his Griffin and Sabine series. This is one of the exercises- a directed collage- he has you follow a list of things like paint half the paper with a color and half can be done in different ways- then add tissue paper and so on- It was so fun and such a different way to work.
