Art Part project #1


I’m teaching an altered book class later this month (details here) in Berkeley, and I’ve got Nancy Drew book pages strewn all over my studio! Such fun. So I’ve been feeling very “girl sleuth-y” in my crafting in general now too.

I just got my very first Art Parts (designed by fabulous Wendy Vecchi) today, and I’m excited to play! The material is hard (kind of wood-like vs chipboard-like) and I’m excited that I can abuse & mess with it to my hearts content without worrying about warping or bending.

SO! Since it’s May, I figured I’d tape my adventure & share with you. I hope you enjoy!!

note: yes, I realize now that having iPhone lower/zoomed in would have = better video… but as this was a spur of the moment “peek” into my creative process + little project I am sharing, and will remember next time that small project = don’t need the high shelf to hold phone for taping!!

  1. Hi May,
    I enjoy reading about your antics in your studio. I hope that one day I can attend one of you classes in person. I have a trip to the your country in August this year but to the east coast.

  2. Thanks for sharing. I have wanted to play with Art Parts for some time now. Think I shall take a trip to Archivers and see if they carry any. Otherwise I need to place an online order. You made me want them even more. I also want to try Clearly for Art. Have you worked with any of that yet?

  3. I enjoyed your video & project.
    I haven’t tried art parts yet but I really like what I’ve seen Wendy do with them.

  4. If I were anywhere near Berkeley I’d be taking that class for sure! I love your book, and hope you’ll share more of it as time goes on. May I ask exactly what kind of girl sleuth stories you think you’ll use it for? This gal’s intrigued…!
