Our Innerworks Altered Book Collaboration has come to an end. All of the six participating artists' books have been completed-filled with the most wonderful artwork and interpretations of themes we've each chosen for our books. Over the course of 6 posts, I will be displaying paired artist's pages. So for today, I will post pages that I created in Seth Apter's book and the pages that he created in mine. Seth's book, titled Distressed Elements was the last book that I worked in- and my book, Designs in Nature, was the first book that Seth worked in. We were the A to Z pair! What a wonderful opportunity it's been to work with 5 spectacular artists, to participate in my first altered book collaboration, and to be influenced by the selected theme, personality and style of each artist.
Seth's artwork also inspired me to use new materials and techniques for the very first time. Below are the pages I've created in his book. It was such a magical experience for me-
A time for reflection in my life, the world around me,
and my connection to my mom-
Inspired by the portraits Seth included in his book.
The young girl's face below is that of my mom.
This page reflects a state of renewal and rebirth-reflected with a pair of beautiful wings on a butterfly given to me by Alicia Caudle of Altered Bits.
