Goodness me, it is so hot.........

It is just too hot for anything. Keeping doors and windows closed just to keep the heat outside and hiding in my craft room. So, here's another spread for the Round Robin I have entered into. I started this on with a layer of gesso, and then randomly and very sloppily putting blue paint down on my page. Now someone gave me some page from a really old French encyclopedia and I tore them and glued them down with mat gel medium.
I added some modeling paste through a stencil and after drying rubbed some Inca Gold Hematite on.Then I stamped some background stuff on with metallic blue paint. Around the pieces of bookpage I added some shading with an Inktense pencil and then I took out my sewing machine and did some sewing on the pages. Some with a straight stitch, some with a zigzag.
Now since the bookpages were in French, I felt I needed a  nice quote in French; don't you just love that beautiful French language?! And then I found the translation for one of my favourite quotes and it means: It doesn't really matter whát you say, it's hów you say it that's important. Something which is just só true! Your tone of voice can make a world of difference don't you think?! I glued some leftovers from my pages onto cardstock and sprayed with Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst spray. Then I stamped the text on. I distressed the edges before gluing them down.
So, I hope you like this one, I'm off making some ICADS, I have some three to go in order to catch up. Have a great day, hugs Frea
