I've been embroiled in a massive project--an altered book--for months and months. It didn't start out like that, but it turned into one of those "art heals" things along the way. If you have things to think about, I suggest you try your hand at an altered book. If you've never done one, I've written a bunch of tutorials on how to get started with the prep and the structure on my blog at lauratringaliholmes.blogspot.c…. Okay, it's a little intense over there--I won't dissemble. There are 10 parts to the "Don't Get Jittery On Me" blog series in all and not all are about technique. Some are about that aforementioned "art heals" thing. You should be able to find your way around in the blog archive if you're interested. If you'd rather just look, I'm posting my work here a couple of pages a day. What you're looking at below is the second spread, from which the book takes it's name. Thanks for looking.Don't Get Jittery On Me, spread 2 by LauraTringaliHolmes

I'm glad to see you posting around DA Laura, the work looks so much better here! although less immediate than fb, I give you that...

I just came back of a (longer than planned) hiatus here in DA so it may take a while to look carefully at your art, but I want to check out every piece and savour them all!

Works definitely look better here. It's also nice to see things together, which is something dA allows that FB doesn't. I just get overwhelmed sometimes by how fast things build up in my inbox. There's SO much to look at! But I'm working on handling that. :)
