"Art is my vehicle through life; may we share the ride together." Ron Wickersham

Finished!

I lied - we actually made SEVEN projects on the art day, not six! Here is the final one - a "gentlemen's peep show book." The covers are corrugated cardboard and the pages are ticket tags, all of which was bound with the Bind-It-All. Again, this was an easy-peasy project - simply adhering copies of vintage postcard ladies, patterned papers, stamps, lace, ribbon, flowers and buttons and bling. Jeri had fashioned a crank from a coat hanger which was threaded through the corrugation channel of the front cover to simulate a hand crank for turning the pages of the peep show. I hadn't added mine yet when I photographed this. The binding is actually on the bottom of the cover and the book opens from the top. It measures about 4" by 6." Enjoy the show!

And the final two pages. Don't you love the last one?
