Pg 1

This is the inside front cover and the first page.  As you can see, each page will have words that start with the letter on the tab.

I have had a lifelong love affair with words, text, alphas, etc.  I love using them in all my artwork.

Library Card mini-book

This is the Library Card Pocket mini-book that I made for my friend, Sara, in our local art group.  I painted some watercolor paper with thinned down red and let dry.  Later I added the swipes of thicker red and used a leather tool to make imprints into the thicker part of the paint.  I used a small lid and dipped it into ultramarine blue and made rings randomly on the paper.  Lastly, I dripped green paint over the paper.  After it was completely dry, I made the book covers for this mini-book.

I chose to do definitions.  Thus, the title "Define It!"
Each page inside has various words defined and tags in the pockets that continue the theme.  I used little tabs on the fronts of the pages and attached typewriter alphabet stickers to them so that they spell out "DEFINE" when laying closed.  I attached the red ribbon underneath the covers and then added a red velvet leaf to the front of the book.
