S is for Self Image
Horrah the technique I have been waiting for. I did the cut-outs a while ago, great to see how to use them as masks rather than just to stick them down. I had patterned paper to work with, so sprayed black Dylusions around instead. So I guess opposite silhouettes in the end.
I took photos of the magazine pictures from both sides so you can see the images I used. I have since found another one of a wedding dress not unlike the ballgown one. Best to look out for them before you need them if you ask me.
- Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm a lapsed crafter of late but still managing my diary Scrapbooking, plus cards as required. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, not really got back to the latter since the pandemic. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I am a Christian.

An A to Z of Me #19 - Self Image

I like the way you put the glamourous silhouette under the flap, sort of 'the you inside'. The patterned paper in a black background works really well, too.
I think many would identify with you, BJ. And with your desire to dress up in something glamorous for a change. Nice page - I like the technique used to create the reverse-silhouettes. By my reckoning you've only got seven more pages to go before your album is complete :) Elizabeth xx
Awesome!! I like that technique and agree with Tracy about the inside "you!"
