Play days are better than medicine - especially when you get the chance to share such a day with a special friend and collaboration buddy. Those two apply to Fiona! Apart from a couple of hours a month ago, we have not had time to sit and work/share/plan since I left for overseas mid February and we only live 15 minutes apart. For both of us life has been frantic for one reason or another.
Today was set aside however, and as usual was a real tonic. The plan was to work out how we would house two of our collaborative pieces - our envelope bundles and these small playful books below. In our posting on these books we mentioned that we had decided to leave them as unbound books as they really are 'books' (I use the term quite loosely) to be played with and rearranged. As such it seemed that perspex would provide the perfect solution and we each made our little perspex slip cases. Seeing it open ended here in these photographs, I think I may make another slip case to close it in the other way. A double slip case can look quite effective. We will see.
We decided on a pouch format for our envelope bundles and the last photograph shows the papers we selected to house these bundles. We will complete these in our leisure time at home ...
One of the exciting aspects today was sharing with each other, the thoughts we had been having regarding our next collaborative book. The collaborative aspect of this books is that we will be working to a common theme and will mentor each other. What we do and how we do it, will be our own decisions. We are hoping to have these ready by the end of July. Fun. Again!
