phew!!!! I eventually finished my page ready for entry into the new Craft Barn challenge for 2013. This is right up my street, so to speak, as you have the option to 'alter' a dictionary (among other ideas) and play with lots of words/text. For full details of the challenge please pop on over HERE, the lovely Izzy explains all. If you fancy a peek at the entries so far please pop on over HERE too.
I love the way that the letters posted each fortnight for the challenge are to be random and that 'little twists' are to be thrown in every now and again!! What a great way to keep the challenge fresh and enticing for us all and help us to avoid the temptation to try working ahead ha ha ha!!
Anyhoo, here you go (ooh and apologies for poor pics, my book wouldn't fit on my scanner for a full double spread shot)........
I opted for V for VENUS and have done a double page spread for the Goddess and the planet.
Lots of acrylic glazes, stamping, stencilling, embossing, collage and journaling techniques were applied to create a diagonally symmetrical spread, one of my faves!! The central image of the Venus de Milo was found on The Graphics Fairy, the other images were sourced from a google search.
Hopefully these scans of the 2 pages will show the details more clearly.......
You can see here that I have put the statue on a 'plinth' incorporating the dictionary definition!! Lol, the plan was to keep this part of the page free from glaze for more definition but I downright forgot when I was slapping the glaze on - what a muppet!!
Many thanks for popping by and leaving a comment if you feel you would like to.
