Honolulu Altered Books Group March 2016





Aloha,
  I hope you all had a Happy Easter. The holiday gave me the time needed to get this blog completed. What a wonderful batch
of altered art we have for the month of March. For those of you on the mainland, we wish you could be here in person as we talk about our art, techniques and inspiration that you are about to see. Hopefully some of you will make the journey and attend a meeting in person.
  We look forward to seeing what new art is on the horizon.

Exploring the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald
on November 10, 1975.

The cause of it's sinking is still under debate.

There are many theories as to what happened.
But sadly all 29 on board perished. 

Although there have been nearly 6000 shipwrecks and
30,000 lives lost on Lake Superior, the Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald remains the most famous due to the Gordon Lightfoot song. He drew his inspiration from a Newsweek article that misspelled the ship's name. He wanted to pay proper respect to the crew.

Sue's spread for the "How Old Would You Be Today
if You Didn't Know Your Real Age?" book takes her
back to high school and her early college years.

Fancy smoke rings!
