Treasure re-exposed

 A buried treasure ...playing along with Seth Apter from The Altered Page - this is a re-post from 2009 (!) regarding my self published book that was designed by my very talented sister Tami.
One day she just surprised me with this colorful and special book.
I feel this book really reflects me as a mixed media artist, with all the textures and colors that I love.
The publishing of this book was a big step in my life as an artist. I have just a handful of copies left before it becomes a "collector item"...(available in my Etsy store). The same year also brought to life my second book that was published by Interweave: Printmaking + Mixed Media.
ps: please check The Altered Page on 7.23rd for additional buried treasures from other bloggers.
Here is the original post:

I am doing the happy dance! A second and a little bigger edition of my new book is here!
I love these colorful squared books and would be happy to send them away to any one who is interested. The book price is $30.00 + shipping. Inside you will find 70 pages of my colorful mixed media art: from fiber to paper, from printmaking to bookmaking and from collage to assemblage. (Wow, it even rhymes!). Please email me for a copy or more information. (
These are a couple of pages from the book. (There are more photos in some of my previous posts).
