I've always had a 'thing' about boxes, especially little boxes. Laurie Doctor teaches a very easy method for creating any size of box. I have several that are 'in progress' but I completed one on Thursday and stuffed it full of eight miniaturized copies of the Major Arcana tarot cards I've recently completed. I've included a couple of printer scans below. This little 'deck' is about 2 x 2.5 inches. I mounted the tarot cards onto cardstock and then laminated them. It'll be off to one of my wonderful art friends next week.
Thanks Lorraine for sending the photo along.
Finally, the "Citizen ATC Challenge" at The Recollection Parlor is near completion with the exception of one artist whose cards went missing in the mail. Here's a poster illustrating all of the submissions. We had every country represented in this challenge, making it particularly special and as you can see, the work is amazing! You can see each card posted individual if you visit The Recollection Parlor.

Above is what will eventually become a bookmark. The paper is Arches Text Woven which is 100% cotton and incredible to work with. Laurie Doctor introduced me to it at the workshop last week and it is already a favorite. As far as paper goes, it is so sturdy and as she pointed out - very similar to cloth. I tested one piece by soaking it under the sink in hot water, crumpling it up and then drying it. It showed very little sign of transformation....the TIMEX of paper! The poem is by Pablo Naruda. I used the same watercolors as in the envelope. If you look at it closely and large, you'll see an outline of Mr. Byron. :0)
