"Winged Things" Altered Book

I have created a Sign-In page for the Round Robin that is ongoing, having just begun, in my Altered Arts group. The theme that I have chosen is Winged Things, up to the interpretation of each artist who adds to my book.
Behind "the nest" is a pocket to hold the sign-in tags to be filled out by each artist. The sign-in tags themselves are in the shape of large eggs. I created the nest using raffia, fibers, thread, feathers and sticks. It is very dimensional so I had to remove quite a few pages at the begining of the book to accommodate the bulk. The first artist has worked on my book and she tied a "leash" to her egg and added eggs along the leash. The other end of the leash is attatched to her spread. She is a very clever girl!! She did a wonderful job! This was the first time that I have been able to have a spread presented to me by the artist. It was very exciting! Now the book is with the next artist and I will get to glance at her work next month. The book will make the rounds to a total of 10 artists. SO I will finally be able to have it in my hands for a long study., but not till September.

Love your nest! What a clever idea for a sign-in! I do RRs with my local group too and it is so fun to see the progress of the book each month :)
