(raw art...painted, cut and altered...hand painted paper..stamp block, beading)
All the backs look exactly the same as the first ones...easy does it...my
time is being spent on the top of the page...Christie did not want any of
the backs to be white...so with my business card cut up and my flying
heart(which goes on every piece I do usually) I do not have to think to much
when it comes to the back....press here to see the post with the backs on it.
When I picked up my copy of Cloth Paper Scissors there was an article in there by Chrysti Hydeck on how to make Skinny Book Pages....This called to me...the pages are 4 inches by 8 inches...And I thought ... I WOULD LIKE TO DO THAT!! (hey, whats one more thing on the list?!?!) Anyhow, my friend, Nici told me about the challenge that Chrysti put out on her new site...So...I SIGNED UP...Yes, 26 pages need to be complete, and I will get a book back (assembled and bound by Chrysti) Once I got past the FEAR of NOT GOOD ENOUGH, I started my pages by making sheets of hand painted and designed paper (120 lb watercolor paper) and cut them out...3 skinny book pages to each sheet I made...So this is the first sheet which I did in hues of orange, yellow and red...raked some plaster over it and altered it with small art that I drew..painted and then cut out...I like the process and will continue to do at least 2 every day so that they will be done before the deadline!! (well, hopefully!!) I happen to be an 11th hour girl, but this project needs a little more time because it is a new process for me!!
Her perfect body structure…
She could be just about anything, as long
As the fashion let her.
But alas, those days did come to an end,
Both with age and wisdom,
For nothing is as perfect as it seems
It has to come from within you.
So here is Barbie in transformation…
A Shaman for all women…
To stimulate, motivate, and electrify
With magic and delight,
She now inspires each of us
to be true unto our self.
