This second set of scans are book pages for the lovely Mama Peggy! Her theme was flowers and we got to alter a victorian style flower album, which was fun! I used pink because that was the colors of my pages to work on! Yes. You don't have to tell me I'm a sharp cookie - I am quite aware of that! Heh! And honestly, these scans do not do justice to these pages at all. I'm not saying they are the most amazing pieces of art ever - but they turned out very soft and sweet. The border around the pages is actually a pink glitter and looks very pretty. The angel wings also have glitter on them. I added some pink vellum flowers and a tiny white vellum butterfly to the pages as well. I felt guilty for not doing "more" to them. But since the carnations were already printed on the page, I really wanted to incorporate them into my design. So that meant keeping it somewhat simple. The words in the oval say "The flowers have their angels". It is a quote from around the 13th century that they found in an old manuscript of a writer. And actually, they say it is the first time the idea of flower meanings (which was very big in the victorian age!) was first written down. I hope you like your pages Ma P! The book will now come home to you! Yay!
Now children, I must go tuck myself into bed. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
