I had a terrific, long Thanksgiving weekend! Five days off flew by! By the same token, I got quite a lot accomplished! And I feel SUPER rested for this upcoming week. During these last few days, I put up 2 Christmas trees, cleaned the house, got all the laundry out of the way for this week, made a MAJOR dent in my Christmas shopping, spent quality time with family and friends, and still had some time to work on some new artwork! Here are some of my latest pages:

If you look closely at these pages, it looks like I have a "bald" space at the end of the right page. It actually was a new page because the previous page was just half the size of a regular page. In this book, I have altered the sizes of my pages to give them a little more contrast and make them more interesting to the eye too. After playing with the size, I made the next page look like it is part of these pages. You will see that effect when I post more artwork later in the week. I am 4 pages away from finishing this book, then it will be time to start another book. I already have my new book waiting for me... I am "itching" to start work in it since it is a different size than this book. Just like I like playing with the sizes of my pages, I like experimenting with the sizes of the books I work in. Different perspective and much more interesting than the status quo...

That's my motto too with books-different sizes, shapes, pages, etc... keeps one on their toes. I LOVE these pages.

Glad to hear you had such a great weekend!!!

these pages have such a great balance to them, and they attract your eye right away. That is what I want to achieve with my pages. Great pages

Thank you, Kelly! Yes, working in only 1 type of book all the time would be extremely dull.

Thanks Lee for the compliment. The more you work on your art, balance and making you art more attracting to the eye become 2nd nature. You will get there! Listen to me; I sound like the teacher and administrator I am! LOL!

These pages look great! And I love the variation is page size. It makes the book so much more interesting!
