Over a year ago, when I was still on the PID design team, I did several projects using their Marie images. One was a bracelet, and as I was making it, it was in my mind that I would use it in one of the Marie journals. I think we had just recently started that group. For one reason or another, it never felt quite right in the other books, but I had a feeling it would find its way into Inge's book. And so it did.
First, here is the bracelet. The band is fabric, decorated with beads and other baubles and some funky fibers. The Ranger memory frame holds a small picture of Marie which was covered with Crackle Accents.
So, my concept is, Marie loves beautiful jewelry.....especially when it contains her own image. And here are my two pages:
I used Distress Stains, Colorwash, and Perfect Pearls mists to get the colors in the backgrounds. On page one, I added stamping to create my own patterned paper. The image of Marie was an internet find.....found, I think by Val.....and she is colored with markers and embellished with Liquid Pearls and glaze pens.
Both pages have a gold embossed leafy border (Wendy Vecchi stamp). I didn't further decorate the second page because I wanted the bracelet to be the focal point. I attached it with easily untied gauze so if Inge actually wants to wear it, she can.
So, for me at least, no more Marie journals to work in. The queen is finished, long live the queen!
