Pelon Book for Round Robin




I made this Pelon book in Lesley Riley's class at Art & Soul in Portland, OR. I was recently asked to participate in a Round Robin that was to be limited to four people with two weeks turn around time. I choose this Pelon book for my rr book and decided on a theme of Animal Totems. Here is the start of the book that I will be mailing later this afternoon for the next person to add their artwork on one of the pages.



This book was made by using a large rectangle of Pelon. The middle was slit and then it folds up into a booklet. The Pelon was painted with Golden paints and I used some dyed silks and pieces of organza that I printed on with an ink jet printer to collage onto the Pelon.

Lorri, this is beautiful. I love the mothe wisdom and the wings on the tag. The colors are great. I bet you end up with an incredible book at the end of this RR.

I think this is a GREAT booklet for a small round robin. Love the moth and well, of course, the colors!

I was just thinking about starting a round robin and this is fantastic inspiration. I love the stitching, especially the tiny flowers around the moth.
