After a brief but very enchanting visit to Paris for a birthday shopping spree, our girl is now en route to Pennsylvania.
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.
The technique used in the title page is the same faux silk technique used in the first journal. With this technique, stamped, and crumpled tissue paper is glued on to the blue background. The wash painted on first and then lightly salted to give the crystal effects. Happily this one doesn't make me think of wall decor at the Overlook Hotel. Remember the Shining? Yeah, nuff said there but you can see what I'm talking about here.
I actually did not know what I wanted to use as the theme for my page. I started by writing a short journal entry and the page practically created iteslf! My inspiration was the fact that I had just created a human form that was literally naked! Well, birthday and naked turned into a shopping spree in Paris and a page was born!
