I am beginning a new AB round robin today.  After completing Lisa Vollrath's "Year of Altered Books" class last year, she invited a few of the class members to join her in a round robin.  I am excited to work with a group of artists I have never played with before!

The theme I chose for my book is "Portals."  I created a sort of tunnel book for my introduction and wrote a series of prompts around the different sized openings.  For my initial spread, I wanted to try this pop-up design I had made once before in another AB.  I just love the look of it when you first open the book.  For some reason, it always reminds me of the Twilight Zone:  "You are traveling through another dimension..."  It will be fun to see how the other artists in this new RR will interpret my theme.


  1. Wow! Lorena--that's all the words i have-wow! You are so talented! I am so excited about getting to meet you this summer!!
