Crusade No. 43




After a wonderful week-long program in Book Arts at Stone Coast Writing Center (Wolfe Neck, Maine) I am diving in with both hands to make art. After a visit to Michelle Ward's Green Pepper Press Street Team I was inspired to share in Crusade No. 43, "Text Messaging." It's been a long time since I got glue and ink on my fingers -- too long. What fun I had last night clipping and arranging and pasting down text! Looking forward to seeing what the rest of the team put together.

Ariel - welcome back! Glad to have you back playing with us! Bravo for taking a whole week up in Maine to make books. How terrific! Love your text messaging page - I recognize where "artful" comes from. Love seeing the little phrae you put together "pick text cut from mags". Clever ;) Looks like a great mix of words and colors!

It's so interesting to see the phrases that everyone has chosen to use in their crusades. I especially luv your "curious" & no, before you ask, I didn't turn my notebook upside down to read it ... I nearly did, but I didn't LOL

Fab!

Hey! Word is the word!! (I know it used to be Grease, but now it's Word.) It's cool to work with words when we love them. I am looking forward to working on this this weekend. You have really rocked your text, here!

I really enjoyed reading your page - so many of the phrases could be used with the green 'life' as though the page had all these hidden meanings. Very cool!

Love the way this has turned out - so different from others I've seen on my bloghop. I, too find it so intriguing to see which words people have chosen - I think they speak volumes. Off to peruse your blog, now...
