I have been having an absolute blast this weekend getting my collaborative book started to mail out to Ashley Calder. I was so inspired by her work in the Freestyle book and contacted her. We found out we were both Buddhist and thought it would really be fun to do a collaborative project with a semi-Buddhist theme. At first we were going to call it Funky Buddha (just loved the title!) but mine evolved into Be after I got a hold of another of Kobi Yamada's books, this one by the same title. I was inspired by her quote and took off with the concept in my book.
The page on the left is inside the cover and the page on the right is actually a fabric page and is attached to the inside of the back cover with clips. This is my first page and will be sewn into the spine of the book where you see the chenille fabric in the photo above. I love these dragonfly wings that I found in our backyard this evening. I am very excited to see how this collaborative evolves. It is really helping me keep my creativity flowing and challenging me to enjoy the process, wherever it leads!
