Honolulu Altered Books Group Round Robin #10 Feb. 2016


Aloha,
Welcome back to the Honolulu Altered Books Groups 10th
Round Robin. We would like to welcome back former players, Dee, Hope and Marcy. And a big Aloha to our new players Misty, Anna, Carolyn, Sandra and Sophia. We meet on the second Saturday each month at Rubber Stamp Plantation. www.rubberstampplantation.com  Please patronize the web site and help support local business.
We have been hosting this group since 2003 and have made many friends in Hawaii as well as across the nation. We are looking forward to seeing where this round will take us. In the past rounds we laughed, cried, and shared deep thoughts and fond memories.
  If  players have anything art related they would like posted on the blog, just email it to us in Honolulu and we'll try to get it posted for you.  
 So without any further ado, let's start round #10.

"I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way--things I had no words for."     Georgia O'Keeffe 


Amy starts us off with her book titled
"A Word of Art"

She included this fancy sign in page.

Here are her instructions, so pick a word
and have fun with it.

Misty has cooked up a great idea for an
altered book. "The Comfort Food Diaries"

Here is her sign in and instructions.

Here she tells us about being raised by her grandparents and
the foods that remind her of them.

Rosemary is supplying a book on tea for her
theme of "T is for Techniques".

Here is her title page.

Use different techniques and describe them
to us.

Dee's theme is
"Bell Epoque to Art Deco, the first
40 Years of Fashion in the 20th Century".

I'm sure we can all fashion up a lovely spread for Dee's book.

Hope has such a large title for such
a small book. "The Beauty of Imperfection
and Impermanence".

Inside front cover.

A colorful page.

You decide.

A view of permanence vs impermanence....

....and the threads that bind.

Su explores "Harmonious Creations". Art
Inspired by Science, Math and Nature.

Here we can discover art by not taking anything for granted.
Art is where we find it. Be it science, math or nature.

Some examples.

Sue's theme is "Below, Above and
By the Sea".

Sign in goes where??

These girls will sure make a splash
at your next party.

Ina the Octopus.

Something fishy is going on here.

Pat's theme is "Bag it UP".
I like her hand bag on the cover!

Pat encourages us to use our imagination to incorporate
bag into your art.

Bags of cash!

Sandra's theme is "I Love..." 

Share things you love. Who, what, when, why, etc.

Don't forget to sign in.

Looks like someone likes books.

Well, we now know that Sandra loves books!

Kim and Keahu's theme is "Grow-- A Garden
Themed book".

You can plant your sign in into a seed packet.

The earth laughs in flowers. We need more laughter
in the world.

Sophia's theme is "Negative and Positive Spaces"

Title page.

The path through the woods.

Positive and negative.

Pam's theme is "There are None So Blind as
Those Who Will Not See / Before I Die I Want to.." 

The eyes are useless when the mind is blind.

Where will this theme take you?

Nice start.

Oxymorons" 

Explore the tongue in cheek world of oxymorons!

Debbie's theme is " How Old Would You be
Today if You Didn't Know your Real Age?"
