Recycled lace, recycled magazine and book images, paint, thread, digital camera component.
(Front pages- top photo)
Page 1- Memaid.
Although this page took a lot of time cutting and gluing all of her scales I think it was worth the effort! I found this image of the lady laying down in a magazine and decided that she needed a tail...really, I am not sure why she never had one originally:)
The lace flower is from a net curtain and the moon and shells from childrens books.
Page 2- The Quest for Immortality
I found the cape wearing, shield bearing horseman in a childrens book and knew straight away I would use him. Took me a while to think of a theme as I am trying to avoid any direct links to magic, wizards etc. The little square at the top right corner is from a digital camera that my son took apart.
The back of that page has an image of a young female apache indian performing a ceremony in a Teepee...it seemed to be made for the page!
I have to say I am really happy with these pages...I got my book back from Spain yesterday and it's absolutely beautiful. Stunning!!
Will post pics soon:)
