My Accordion Book

While I was in Bemidji, I received my accordion book Terry, John, Tom and I have been working in. Terry created one for each of us. From Terry’s post about one of them “To get an idea of the scale here- the inside of the book extended is 30 inches long. The backside extended without the covers is 24 inches. The book is 4 3/4 inches tall. Closed the book is 4 x 5 inches.” Terry has done several of these collaborative accordion books it was fun to see them at his home.

We each had a two page spread you will see below and then on the back we all collaborated on the entire back spread. They traveled around to each of us and we worked on them. I think mine turned out beautifully. I love having my little book home with me.  Enjoy! Click on any image for a larger view.

Sidekick - 5 - 72

Spread 197 – Side Kick 5

I am home now from my trip to Bemidji, MN, to be with Terry, Thomas and John. Honestly it will take me a while to come down off the energy, love and support and the sheer creative energy of our little group. It brings tears to my eyes how much their friendship means to me to have them in my life, and their support and understanding of my need to create, well that and the simple fact – they “get it!”. Enjoy a few more spreads from my side kick or “psychic” this weekend. I will do a post about the trip and the spread we did from the journaling game. Orly was not with us be she was there in spirit in many, many ways.

Spread 192 - Side Kick - Cover - 72

Spread 192 – Side Kick – Cover 

Vintage children’s book, tape, paint, vintage papers.

Orly Avineri gave this Side Kick to me a few years ago. She made the cover and I have always loved it. Over the years it has developed a lovely patina, with bits of pant here and there. She uses Side Kicks in her class for receiving leftover paint, papers, scraps and bits left over from life and from art journaling really without caring. I have used this in her class. It has become one of my favorite little journals.

This next week I am going to be in Bemidji, Minnesota staying with Terry Garrett, and we are joining us are  Tom LaBadia, and John Arbuckle. We will be creating, art journaling and sharing a lot of laughs. From time to time I will be posting various Side Kick spreads. Enjoy!
