My LB Contributions

     The photos are of the pages I did in contributing to the Lacebook Collaborative and were on my mixed media page before I changed Blog format. There is a link in the "This and That" section of my sidebar that takes you to my completed lacebook post and to Suzy's. At some point the other contributors will provide their links.
     When Sox asked me to participate I felt totally intimidated since I truly had to dig my sewing machine out from the dark corners of my clothes closet. It had been years since I sewed anything and certainly not in a collage format which I don't do often in any media - BUT, I am learning! Had such a wonderful time creating, met fabulous women, and developed a kinship of artistic spirit.

     I purchased an original piece of sheet music, Girl of Mine, and the Metropolitan cover, both with artwork by Rolf Armstrong and dated 1919. Then, had my friend Maria Allison, a concert pianist, play the music on her baby grand in her home while I taped it to include with the page. [Will try to figure out how to include the one minute clip on this Blog.] Of course, this project was just begging for a bit of picot beading which is one of my favorite stitches.

PARIS is actually "cut out" in CS5 from a scene under the
Eiffel Tower; beautiful European lace, too.
