Each month I create a "skinny book" page (4" x 8") based on a theme chosen by one of the Oh My Gothic yahoo group members and in turn, someone makes a page for me on my theme of love. We collect all the pages over 16 - 18 months and then we'll bind them at the end of the exchange for a cool collaborative book! This month, I needed to create a page, both front & back for Paula Dion. Her theme is HATS - hats on people, hats on animals, hats on anything, red hats, blue hats, me hats, you hats, Vintage hats, use your imagination hats . . . well, how about hats made of flowers? Here is what I came up with -click on any photo for more detail - or view all of my skinny book pages in this album.
This side of the page is 2 layers -there is 1 image printed on vellum on top of another image printed on paper. I will show you below . . .
Kind of a little surprise! Paula - I hope you love this.
It was a challenge for me but once i stretched myself, a joy to create - just what i needed, thank you!
