I managed to finish all my pages this weekend, so they will be sent all over the world tomorrow and here are the themes and the person I'll be sending my page to:
MY THEME IS CHILDHOOD
Each participant must create their piece with a picture of at least their head as a child. My piece has a picture of my head as I sleep. The background is a scrap piece of baby wipe with leftover paint on it ... I love it when I can recycle items.
I received the background piece of a dictionary or encyclopedia page with definitions of the Eagle from someone I traded with in the past, I used Tim Holtz stamps and added the image of a bald headed eagle and a feather attached with a small stapler. This is quite a simple layout, but I just love it.
Ali wanted her Past Times theme in Tim Holtz Style. Now I don't know Tim Holtz' style very well, so I figured if I use Ranger products and stamps, I'd be on my way. The image is a real tin type gem photo that I picked up on eBay recently.
The blue background is a leftover piece I created using the credit card technique and I think the vibrancy of the colour is just perfect for this beach scene.
I have wanted to use this paper with the clocks all over it and Winged Time was the perfect medium. Again another simple layout, but I felt if I added more to the piece the simplicity of the message would be overpowered.
A treasure map where the X marks the spot with a pirate, is pretty Olde Worlde.
