Under the Sea

Sea Sprite - chunky pages front
Sea Sprite - chunky pages back
Under the Sea - chunky page pile
Under the Sea - chunky page stack
This swap was announced right before my first term at college ended. I figured I could get the bulk of my pages done on my 2-week break if I recycled some previous drawings I did for DJ's class. The longest part was getting my backgrounds done. I collaged various papers onto cardstock and painted in purple and turquoise tones.

Everything beyond the background was stitched on. It felt so good to put the glue away LOL I hope everyone in this book likes them. These are possibly my favorite chunky pages I've done so far -- and I think the pages have such a cool texture between the papers, molding paste, and tulle!

Georgeous pages, Karen... Of course you couldn't do any of the books I was in! Rats! This theme didn't grab me so I won't get one. :(

These are ohhhh so cool, Karen. My oh my, you've been busy using fabric and your sewing machine. That's great, and I love the way you sewed these, and also used the tulle. I love the colors too. These are very inspiring to me regarding my fabric book. One of these days I'm going to actually sit down and use my new sewing machine. No, really!!!
