As my first collaborative art journal (Through The Eyes of An Artist) nears the end of its year+ journey, I am getting ready for the start of our next project: The Queen & Her Cake. We'll be interpreting the Marie Antoinette theme in a variety of ways. My choice, Marie's Scrapbook. Everyone will do 2 page scrapbook layouts in my journal, imagining Marie as a scrapbooker, inserting pictures, memorabilia, embellishments, and journaling fit for a queen! I am very excited about this group. There are 17 of us, and we represent the United States, Canada, England, Australia, and Belgium.
Our launch date is March 10, and I am ready. Here is my cover (an 8x8" fabric covered scrapbook that I have altered):
I do have an introductory page, but for some reason, blogger refuses to upload it. Onward....I took the advice of many in this group, and decided to use the Marie paper doll I made the other day in my own layout for my journal. Here is Marie enjoying the gardens of Versaille:
I added a bit more bling to the doll. And here is the facing journaling page:
For someone whose usual style goes toward the darker and grungier, this has been a fun challenge for me...I'm really unleashing my inner Marie, frou frou and all!
