My first altered board book. The front and back cover is scanned fabric samples printed on copy paper and glued on the cover with matt medium.
I used various digital scrapbook papers to make the background and pocket. The images are from Instant Memories Family Ready-To-Use Scrapbook Pages book and disk. The quote on vellum is from Quietfire Design.
This shows the tag out of the pocket with another Quietfire Design rubber stamp quote.
first bit, now the knitting is done now on with sewing it into a bag and adding the strap.

Created Byhand Tuesday Challenge is to create art with the theme of pets, so the time was right. This one is chenille fabric sample, the photo is an old black and white of my brother, edited to sepia and stitched with brown rayon machine embroidery thread. The photo is printed on regular copy paper and brushed with matt medium and allowed to dry before stitching. The quote and date are stamped on coffee stained cotton fabric. Oh this photos was taken in an orchard and that is a real honest-to-goodness wooden apple box that the boy and dog are siting on.

My son is working on a web page for a college class and wanted me to take some photos for him to use. We picked this nice treed spot and I took my first shots using the sport setting for subject in motion on my camera. I'm pleased with the results of him riding past as I took the photo and he found some to use for the web page too. This is my favourite.
