Another Round Robin

Some members of Fabric Doll Art, one of my favorite internet chat groups, have begun a round robin of cookbooks. Each participant is to create a book and choose a theme and send it on it's way to eachother. I need another project like I need a hole in my head, but this one sounded like too much fun to pass up. I LOVE to cook, and especially to collect recipes. :-)

Paper art has NOT been my "thing" in the past. I have lots of paper and stamps and glue and things, but I just haven't really developed the knack of putting them all together in a pleasing way. Sigh... I only hope I don't mess up anyone's book!


This is Sherry Goshon's book. Her theme is coffee. For the first page I painted a coffee cup and journaled a little about coffee, then glued it all down onto a pre-painted page. It's too bad the fiber embellishments don't show up better. They're very pretty.

This 2 page spread holds the actual recipes. They are printed on card stock and stitched onto decorative paper for a mat. I love the little coffee stamp on the bottom of the left hand page. It still needed something, so I added a little more of the fibers and some shell buttons. It's not as nice as some of the things I see in the magazines, but I'm not ashamed of it.

Ashamed? I should think NOT, Judi! It's terrific! I can't wait to see what you do to mine! Again, we are all going to be so pleased when we get our journals back, knowing the effort, the thought, and the love our friends have added to them! You did a beautiful job on Sherry's!
