Last week I was talking to Lisa about our Round Robin book and Lisa said that other than the pages she had made for her book, she hadn't seen any of the other pages. I just happened to have her book, so I told her I'd do a post on it.
When we first started the Round Robin, we weren't sure if we wanted to post pictures of our pages- we were afraid it might spoil the surprise of getting the actual books- but that really hasn't happened at all. So far, the pages have had so many details and so much texture that pictures don't quite do them justice.
Lisa's book came to me from Sandra- wrapped in this beautiful vintage wallpaper.
The cover is the first picture in the post. The center of the cover is a resin block.
The front side of the second page has a pocket holding a piece of ledger paper with the heading "TEXAS COTTON", a sweet old bundle of rick rack and a tattered and spotted baby shoe. Lisa is the queen of making stained, worn and torn items tell a story.
This is the back of the second page. Love, love this fabric. I wanted to figure out how old it was- my guess is before 1920 and probably before 1900. I googled "dating calico fabric" and got a lot of hits for sites like "Match.com"- I don't want to GO OUT with the calico fabric, I just want to know how old it is.
I was also directed to a site where you can get a Russian bride...
This is Karla's page for Lisa's book- a beautiful French net doll dress on perfectly faded wallpaper.
If you'd like to craft with Lisa and Karla, you're in luck- they both have fun new tutorials for sale.
