June 16, 2012, ten artists met at a very historic and inspiring cabin next to the Platte River in Bailey, Colorado. The building was originally built as a post office and store, and was occupied by several different artists over the last century. Wonderful details like a hand carved mantle, the antique tin ceiling, and other salvaged architectural details made it a charming place to make books, and then create collage.
HERE is a link to learn more about the cabin.
Our work surface was a monumental oak table, rescued from the wood pile!
Views of rock outcroppings, pine groves, and the lively river made it an inspiration setting for our work.
We made a mess, had great food, and sure had fun. . . . Here are some images:
