Winter Break: Book making

A few days after Christmas I spent the day with my friend (and wonderful artist) Jane in her Studio 23. She suggested we alter some little board books she purchased for a class she was going to teach. We made up our own "rules" for this project: each page had to consist of at least three layers, each page had to include a heart, and each page was covered in fabric swatches. We each "secretly" chose at least five items that had to be incorporated somewhere in the book. My favorite was the large key seen dangling at the spine. Jane was not happy with my choice, but decided it could go on the outside of the book. It was fascinating to see the difference in how each of us approached the project. Jane laid out each page before adhering, while I did one page at a time right in the book. It was a blast and I love my mini chunky book! Thanks, Jane.
I've included pictures of the cover, spine, and one of the sets of pages:
