Medieval Thymes

back from our wonderful trip to Puerto Rico…

it will take some time to sift through the oodles of photos we took…

I will have some beautiful stone angels to share with you on Sunday from the Santa Maria Magdalena de Pazzis Cemetery in Old San Juan…

today I wanted to share a project that went in the mail just before we left on our trip…

the Queen Bee five are having a zine swap…

“zine” comes from the word maga’zine’ and is pronounced the same way…

you can find out a little more about zines here if you like…

each of us chose our own theme and created the shell of our zine…

I was inspired by some Lebkuchen packaging  that fit nicely with my medieval theme…

I chose torn canvas for my pages after seeing Susan Godby’s beautiful canvas book for a local round robin…

I found out that paint and water shrunk the canvas pages a bit giving them some character…

burned velvet for the cover of my almost postcard sized pages

with an image stamped into a leather looking foam sheet and my book has already arrived in New Zealand…

it will be fun to see everyone’s creativity as our zines make their way around the world…

I am also looking forward to catching up with each of you dear ones
