I am participating in a round robin book exchange with Terry, John, Irene, and Jacki and Michele. Terry graciously offered to make the book for me. He did a beautiful job. He knows me well, I love the cover.The middle black and metal tape portions of the spread are actually two – three inch flaps. There is a middle section that I will post once my journal returns I would like the participants to read it first.

Here is a photo of my cat Hank rubbing on my book as they often do on my journals.IMG_2153

Hank and My RR Book.

I feel very honored to be a part of this group and I am sending my book off tomorrow to the next person in the group. I will receive it back completed in several months and I will post photos when I do.

    Talk about being intimidated! Yowza, Brian, that spread is awesome (and I chose the word awesome carefully). I love the texture and the depth. Now I am terrified to work in your journal!

    So wonderful Brian! Hank thinks so, too! 🙂 The depth of the images requires my eyes to adjust and hold the image for a long time. Genius for you, the artist, to create that for me, the observer. Thank you.
