During the afternoon of Lesley Venable’s “Treasure Within” class we worked on our book pages. The idea was that these six pieces would be chained together with a small ball chain and would live inside the decorated tin.
The blanks for the book pages are quite clever – little Formica samples. I felt pretty uncertain until Lesley advised us to think of the Formica pieces as tiny collage canvases. Then it was off to the races – and quite fun. My theme was Victorian cats and I had a fabulous piece of wrapping paper that I had saved from a few year’s ago’s birthday present from my sister. It is a treasure trove of Victorian cat images. I also had a few little snippets saved from magazines and catalogs.
It was a great project that I very much enjoyed. Thanks, Lesley!
