Sanctuary Fatbook page


I am currently hosting a fatbook called "Sanctuary" that is all about birds...This is my page for the book, which I have since further embellished with a piece of black tulle??(spelling?) I think the book is going to be really nice. I have had some really great pages come in for this one. I will post a photo of the finished book in a day or so when I get them collated and bound.


I think I am going to take a break from hosting for a little while. I am definately getting a little burned out on fatbooks...I mean really, after awhile how many do you need? I have enjoyed hosting and participating in them for the past year mainly because it gave me a project to do. I really need deadlines and prompts to get me going in my art sometimes and fatbooks really fit the bill. Now, I am looking for something new to inspire me...mail art is something I have been playing around with which I really enjoy...maybe that can become my new obsession? Or maybe I should get back to my art journal??? I always do well with it for a few weeks, then slowly but surely I lose interest...Does anyone else out there have that same problem?


I have definately been in a creative funk lately so I have been concentrating on projects that are more business related...new website, order forms, postcards, etc. It makes me feel productive to get something important accomplished when the creative juices aren't flowing...It must be the time of year, I just want to curl up and read a book. Anyhoo, thanks for listening to my rambling thoughts!
