Showing Off!

We packed so much into last semester that I got behind in posting some of the highlights. I'm VERY proud of how the Altered Book Bas Relief projects turned out and I'd love to show them off. Just click to enlarge each cluster of covers. 
P.S. There are more, I just need to photograph them.

Counter clock-wise from top left - Maya's Name & Cupcake Celebration, Charlotte's Kitty, Clara's Magical Sea Creature and Kassi's Unfurling Rose

I love the way Marco created this graphic Celestial cover above. The bottom yellow is a pencil, the middle an easel with the orange triangle and of course, the moon and star above.

Counter clock-wise from top left - Wow! Liam really wanted to create a bold graphic design on his cover and boy did he achieve it! Laura created a flurry of snow and a Christmas tree. Azia did a stylized reindeer. Chick on it and check out the details! Then Rebecca created this Jasper the Wonderdog cover which of course, I LOVE!

Counter clock-wise from top left - Jesse pulled off this complex Dragon symbol. Simon did a fabulous sketch of his computer and translated it into this amazing cover. Love the way he added jewels to the keyboard and curser. Next is Mia's gloved handprint. Awesome.

Above, detail of Faiths Cheetah and Peacock. She used a hole-punch to make the raised spots on the big cat!

Counter clock-wise from top left - Zoey had a theme going last semester and it involved powerful Fairy/Angels with amazing back-stories. Next is James' Dragon and Swords. A very strong piece. Then Thalia created this cover with Dog and Cat and the symbols that go along with each.

Hady did this one above. Recognize him? Totoro! I love the way it turned out so much.

Counter clock-wise from top left - Maggie had a strong vision for this cover, no pun intended. She has a natural boldness to her work and a few people have commented that it has an Egyptian feel. Next Amelia created this wonderful Green Dog with Blue Spots with a powerful sun. Then Faiths. Annie amazing Dragon Toothless, built up with multiple layers of chipboard and a fantastic sunset behind it! Bravo for pushing yourself darling!

Counter clock-wise from top left - Izzy thinks in pictures and it is just a matter of just following the blueprint in her mind! I love her easle with brush and paint. Now Liris, she too gets a vision in her head and doesn't stop until she gets all the details right. This was a hard piece to cut and paint, but I had not doubt, she pulled it off!! Then Marco's wonderful Celestial Cover.
