Spring Secrets...

Finished up creating my book, the cover and the first few pages for the new round robin I'm in. Then I'll be shipping it off tomorrow. Before it arrives home, four fabulous artists will be working in it. Can't wait to see how it all ends up. The theme on this is a bit different. I was really stuck for awhile. The overall round robin theme is Spring Secrets. I just wasn't finding any images that I was happy with. I think I've done so much art this spring, I was coming up a little dry. Then I dove into my Anthropologie catalogs and (of course) found my muse there. I love these pages, they're quirky, whimsy and still have a spring feel. They really feel right to me right now. I'm happy with that. This page is in there too. It's one of my favorites. Well, the book is off to Lilia now to work in it first. Can't wait for everyone to share their little splash of art inside!
Hope you all had a great weekend. Stay tuned tomorrow for all the May Baskets to fill up blogland with May Day love! Post pics of May Day baskets whether you were in the swap or not. We'd all love to see them:)

I did not get to comment on the wonderful basket you made for Suzi, but let me tell you it is way too cute. I love it. And your swap book looks pretty darn good too. Thanks for sharing your art.

Your book looks great!!. Don't you miss the look of the older Anthropologie catalogs? Two years ago *maybe* the clothes were so frilly and feminine- I rarely save the catalogs that I get now/just not the same!!
