Fat Page Jam (june mcfarlands)

Another set of swaps for you to see, hopefully June has received these by now.

First one was France, June's subject, looked for lots of images, ending up using flag colours for background scrawled some watercolour on paper, overstamped with tim holtz postal stamp highlighted with silver, then found this image that looked like Marie Antoinette, added cuttlebug vellum wing and a crown with touches of foil, on the reverse used my Paris stamp with some watercolouring and more foil, started to get carried away, June is lucky didnt cover whole page with foil, I was having such fun.

Next was my subject Mardi Gras, found a really nice mask and then looked through my stamps for a face that fitted it, more bling and glitter and on the back a Carnival Float image that I loved

Lastly was birds, again another saying came to mind, was going to make huge pastry like lid for pie, then remembered this paper which I think worked out great, so ta da "a pie lid", LOl, for the reverse a kingly image with an interloper, this is my fave I think because it evolved intosomething I am quite pround of.

Thanks for looking, hope you enjoy. Have a great weekend, Im working tomorrow, grrr.

Hi Siobhan
I love these fat pages you've created - they're really lovely:-)
I love the stamps you've used for the second Paris page - are they all on one sheet of stamps?
Well deserved award!
