This is what my unfinished page looked like:
I added to the above, and completed the left side of the page.
Remember, my theme is accessories, and I'm calling my page A Night At The Opera, but don't confuse it with the Marx Brothers movie. It's all about the accessories a woman might wear/bring to the opera, back in the day. Which day, I don't know. History isn't my strong suit. Just call it vintage.
I had created a pocket on the inside front cover, and wasn't sure what I'd put in it.
Inside the pocket there are now four pouches, one for each of the other participants, holding a little gift from me to them.
The inside back cover is where I'm putting the ATCs we all agreed to make for one another, coordinating with our individual themes. I have already received two, so they are attached. When my book returns to me I'll insert the remaining two. What you see here are Sox's and Tracy's ATCs.
This is the back cover with the yellow lace that was bothering me.
My solution was to sew some fabric flowers I made over the lace. (The fabric was cut with Tim Holtz's Tattered Florals die, and many layers were cut.) A bit of the offending lace still shows, but it doesn't scream YELLOW at me. Yes, sometimes colors do shout. Pretty good problem solver, I think.
I finished the back of my page with (what else?) lace. I can sew two pages together, back to back, but if the other artists finish their page backs off nicely I will bind each page as a separate signature and just enjoy the lacey backs. That doesn't have to be decided until my book returns home to me.
