This year has been packed with firsts for me which is thrilling and exhilarating and has made me ever so slightly uneasy. It is not the unknown that causes trepidation but "will it be what is expected or good enough?" that challenges me.
A couple of months ago one of my ArtChix friends accidentally invited me to her Round Robin Book Swap (she mistook me for someone else who had expressed interest). Fortunately for me she had space and graciously let me join in. So once again I dove headlong into the unknown, this time was altered books.
We started the exchange about two weeks ago and I have just finished my first pages. This book's theme is "At The Movies". If you don't know this yet, I was named after the movie "Marnie" by Alfred Hitchcock. Naturally, that is the movie I chose to do!
On the right side I glued many pages together and the cut out a hole for the "screen". The "curtains" are a cool shimmery ribbon and I hand pleated it for the top. Gold rattail cord, black and white striped tape and a theatre seat sticker complete the look.
