True Colors Round Robin

2/10/2010 05:23:00 PM Posted In , Edit This 16 Comments »
In Sept. 2008 I was invited to participate in a round robin based on the book True Colors.  There were 9 of us, and we each chose a color, made a book, did the first spread (with an explanation as to why we chose the colors we did), and sent it off to the next person on the list.  Well, after all this time, it's winding down.  I spent the day today finishing the last spread in the last book I have to work in, and I have mine back!  I thought I'd  show you the cover of the book I made, the explanation of my color choice, and the spread I did in it.  If you'd like, over time I'll post pictures of the other spreads in my book.  They're all wonderful, and I just love my book.  The long wait was definitely worth it!

Very nice! I do hope to see what all the other pages are like. This sounds like a difficult palette for me but your pages and cover look wonderful.

Please post! I have yet to buy True Colors ... I don't know why I haven't yet, lol.
Your spreads are incredible! I bet the texture is fantastic (yes, I am a texture gal).
Also, thank you for commenting on my blog ... I really appreciate it!

Very, very pretty Nancy! And were all your pages for other people's books the same colours? The same completely?

Looking forward to seeing more!

These pages are awesome and of course we want to see the entire thing!!!! Wish there were artists who want to make these and then dare to part with them by selling them!!!
