Oh WOW Seth this is awesome! Wonderful!!! Perhaps you could do a class on a book like that???

Sharon W. said...

I am hoping that (1) you have it with you at Art is You, so I can touch it and (2) the eventual class you offer is at Art is You next year. Great work, Seth.

Wow! I want to travel. I want to make memoires of my inner travels. ;^) This is exactly what drew me away from my sewing machine. vbsigh I'm not sure I can get to a class but I'm more than willing to buy a DVD! hint,hint

I love the little evelopes, windows that open, surprises behind them, in them...fun book to sit with an ponder over, and over, and over again.

So very cool! Pictures just don't do it justice I'm sure! This is something one could spend hours and hours going thru each page!!

Absolutely love this! I'm sure it's even more stunning in person. You can really see in this book how orderly and linear you work~
This one sparked an idea of something i want to make-now we'll just see if i actually do.

Beautiful book - and yes, isn't it amazing the places art can take you while just being in your studio?

Unending details in your creative Memoire. I think the beauty of art at home is that through it- you actually are in another place! Super work!

Stunning, truly! Adore the "wish you were here" layout, rich in layers, very drawn to the photograph.

Like the page with the old pocket library card. I collect these to use, too. Love when I buy a used book or take a book from the library and the card is still in the pocket. Great composition on these pages. Appreciate how you did a memoir with a few words and primarily a visual text.

A lovely book! Such wonderful inspirations! A good idea to use a.....OMG what is the word for B├╝roklammer, I have to look it up, I'm back in a jiffy,.... a paperclip, that's the word! I always avoided using them (I really don't know why), maybe I thought they would look clumsy, but here I can see, they do not.
I love this "I am...." part in the book. I also like that the style is carefree and neat at the same time.
Good job!
