Here is what I have under way at the current time – my gallery piece for TBAI (Teddy Bear Artist Invitational), a show that is rapidly approaching. The end is in sight and then I’ll be photographing the finished piece.
In the meantime, I have taken photos of many parts of its construction. There are some aspects that might look familiar but it is quite different from similarly themed projects I have done in the past.
I felt as if I had entered another dimension when I began making these books – at least one whole day, if not more, with these tiny tomes. When my husband said Topher was chewing on a book, I knew exactly what had happened: one had fallen off my desk and I didn’t even know it. You can see how that might have happened. No harm was done though – to either the book or the dog. I guess it wasn’t one he could sink his teeth into.
I’m still not sure how many of these I will need but it’s great having options in size, color and subject. They were fun to make but I’m glad to be back in this dimension – for a while anyway.
I’ll be back with more photos and details.
