Round Robin Project

Have you ever been involved in a round robin project? Pam, Louise and I decided to give it a try. Pam started the creativity by coming up with some stellar backgrounds. Louise was in charge of the stamping department (and bird sighting). My chore was to embellish what they had done.
Below are the 3 stages of our projects.

Louise's eagle eye saw a bird in Pam's alcohol background. Clever! I hated to cover up Pam's background and Louise's stamping so I only added an embossed metal wing and a blingy eye.

Pam and Louise did such a gorgeous job on this one that once again, I hated to cover it up. I backed this one with black paper that I cut to give a deckled edge, added a crackle painted frame and a few paper roses.

This was the hardest one for me to embellish. You know how you can look at something and either draw a total blank or go into panic mode...yep I was in both. I finally decided to add the beaded trim, a keyhole and key, and the hinge clip with a muse token hanging from a swivel clasp.

The presentation of this completed project was made at Louise's house where Pam and I enjoyed a fun visit to the windy city. Our next round robin will be altered books and will be completed to take to Pam's in the spring.

I jacked the finished projects pictures from Pam's blog. Thanks for such good pictures, Pam!

It's just great to see each stage of the process on these projects Sarah! I love what each one of you did to contribute to the end result. They all turned out fantastic and I bet the book project will be another success.
