I didn't have any clue what I wanted to do for my pages. I just went in with my first page and played with a background, and went from there. Basically on most of them I put some paint down some color on the page. When the paint dried I took some book pages and used the Claudine Hellmuth multi medium gloss to do a transfer. Lifting the piece of book paper off almost as soon as I put it on the page. The I used some stamps (VLVS! of course!) and some stencils and sprays.
As for the main image I had no idea what I wanted to do. I looked through magazine images I ripped out I saw an ad that I liked. I thought I can trace that and then do a Julie Nutting type girl with it. I've read her book "Collage Couture" and in the book she suggested that if you can't draw you can trace. Course this was before her rubber stamps came out with Prima. So thats what I did. I traced the girl out on tracing paper. Then I shrunk the traced image to size I wanted it. I then took the shrunken size and copied that to dictionary pages. This took a few tries to get it right. When printing the girl had the words upside down! I was getting frustrated. LOl but finally I somehow managed to get it right and printed all of them in one shot so I didn't have to mess with it when I needed them. :P I painted the skin with Artist loft Watercolors. The hair is with Pearlesnt watercolors. The dress are from differnt scrapbook papers. The belt is the black Enamel accents by Ranger. Used the Helmar craft and Hobby PVA glue to glue the clothes to the girl and the girl to the page. The sentiments I used on the pages is from Viva Las VegaStamps! Cut and glued the sentiments to the page with glossy accents. The I edge the words around with black pick pen and the clear star dust gelly roll pen.
Now I'll probably do the pictures of what the pages look like in more than one post as I said there are 23 (including myself) people in the swap, so it will be quiet picture heavy. LOL
