Fat Page Jam

Just completed a jam with Rusty and June, Rusty has received hers today so I can blog them on here, for all to see.

June picked France, which I came up with lots of ideas for but nothing that translated into a fat page, until I had my eureka moment "Asterix de Gaulle" (get it, lol). Background was done with adirondack pearl dabber, then used sequin waste to put the flag colours on, then searched some images off the net and used them, on the reverse put the famous De Gaulle free french speech and some more images, hope you like . . .




I picked Mardi Gras, cos I'd seen it on a couple of challenges and though it would be nice and also easy to do,how wrong was I, found lots of images and kept looking at them every day waiting for inspiration to strike, loved this image of this female (male!) and decided to jazz it up with a cuttlebug frame around it to set it off, on the reverse just watercoloured in mardi gras colours through some peel offs . . .



Finally Rusty picked Birds, a big fave of hers, got some sayings in my head and decided to manipulate them into fat pages, Rusty got "Cat amongst the Pigeons", my husband questioned my mental state when he saw this one, dunno what he means, LOL. Like the way this one turned out myself, I crumpled the picture and it gives quite a nice effect of depth, on the back some dead pigeons, I liked this picture as I used to have pigeons in a roof once above my bedroom and they would drive me insane with all their noise,
(hmmm that might explain some things!!) . . .



Anyway I hope you like them, will blog June's once she has received them.



Countdown to mad stash spending splurge at Ally Pally, 1 day 16 hours.
