MARIE ANTOINETTE JOURNAL
March 10th is the send off date for our fourth round robin journal project! We have just about completed the first one (after over a year) and have two in circulation. (I already know what the 5th one will be!!! But I have to wait until a second one is completed!! )
This will be our most ambitious project yet!!! When you think of Marie you think of feathers, and bling... lace and flowers... all the girly things that she is most known for.
This is the journal i have made for this round robin. I made the journal using my all time favorite paper - Fabriano - in an 8x10 format. I painted the journal in blues and gold. I then printed an image of Marie on fabric and glued it onto the cover. I took out my box of "Marie goodies" and just started throwing things on there until it felt finished.
There are 17 artists from the US, Canada, Australia, and Europe. Each artist chose a theme for their journals... A really cool one will be Marie and Sex in the City! Can you imagine!??? Mine is simpler than that.. it's My Dearest Diary.....Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!
I will be doing the first two pages and zettifying Marie in my journal. We will see how that pans out! Stay tuned!
