Studio Back In Order

I've gotten my studio mostly back into place after this past weekend's retreat. All my art supplies are back in their places and I have room on my art table to work on Jeri's Altered Book.

I mostly do collage pieces in Altered Books but have experimented with pockets and cut outs in the past. However, this weekend I learned a lot more about cutting niches and using folds for pockets at the retreat. So I'm working on a spread that has 4 pages folded into pockets. The pockets will hold packets of tea since the theme for the book is about tea.

I still need to find some tea themed paper to use in the spread but I've painted a couple of the pages with Bronze Lumiere paint already.

Here is a picture of the collage spread I did this weekend:
