A paper pouch with acetate window and ribbon closure was created and adhered to the cover of a journal in order to keep the two together and also keep the doll protected. I think it looks positively divine! Look for a video coming soon on how I created this.
Whoa! Double take! Scuse me but didn't I see this background covering the walls of a room in the Overlook Hotel? *insert nervous laugh* For some reason all I can think about when I see this page is the movie "The Shining."
This is actually a technique I learned from a Stampin' Up demonstration called faux silk. It is really quite a nice technique and one I plan to demo for my students. I can do that now because I am an official Stampin' Up demonstrator but more on that another time.
When I was just a little girl
I asked my mother what will I be?
Will I be pretty? Will I be rich?
Here's what she said to me.
I feel like I do when I'm about to go on one of my cruises. There's excitement about what is to come but also a litte sadness about leaving the familiar behind for awhile and getting out of my routine. It's as if I intuitively know that somehow deep inside I'll come back forever changed by the experience, if only just a little. I always do!
So, here I am, naked and alone about to make friends with the world as they lovingly add their creative expression to my paper form. Like the lonely child it is here on these pages I take my first steps away from fear and into the known.xoxo
