Altered Board Book completed: Life Cycles

Unfortunately the pages are out of order as I uploaded five pictues and then had to post them and go back and upload the last two. This is the "Maturity" spread.
This is the last spread in the book: "Entering the Cosmos."
The rest is in the correct order.

Birth
Youth and Childhood
Marriage, Career and Parenthood

Enchanting... I love it .
And the names you've chosen for each page and the book itself match the symbolism of the shapes forms and colors..
Worths looking at many many times.

Suki I just realize you have begun to sell your wares with an Etsy shop! Good for you. All the pieces there including this book are terrific. I am so happy for you and inspired to. I hope this takes off and you are very very successful.

This book wants to be touched;) It is wonderful, the colours are warm and earthy, and the surfaces very interesting and filled with powerful letters, - it has a mystic touch too. It is like a life-rainbow-path, leading to the cosmos, I love it Suki!

thank you all for the comments on my book. They are fun to do. Actually, the camera does not represent the pages quite accurately and I don't know why. The colors fade in the photos.

It is a book to touch, Andrea. I love artworks that can be touched. I know the fingers have oils and some artists don't want one to touch due to this I guess, but I think all my art should be touchable.

Lynn I would say I am LISTING some things on Etsy. Whether anything sells or not who knows. My focus was more to have someplace to display my things, sort of like going to a craft fair and having a table but this is a virtual one. I wanted a reason to finish these things I had started but not yet finished. And it seems to urge me on to complete things. So it is working well that way.
