This is me!

I've been having some fun with my grandchildren over Easter but have still to transfer photos to the laptop. I still have some journal pages to show you though! 
This page is as simple as - looking through a magazine I found a picture of a 'normal' sized model - normal for me that is - and I could see a page in my head straight away. 
I had started a page background but it just wouldn't do, so I painted over part of it with white acrylic paint then used Seedless Raspberry distress stain over the top and let it run into the page! I coloured the poor girl with black acrylic paint(wish I'd photo copied her first)and then wrote on her with an inkessential white pen! Before sticking her down I wrote the same words so that they would sit underneath her too!
The quote is one from Lindsay Mason's Doo Lally Pip collection 'I've had enough'
I added a row of curvy dress forms at the bottom but I'm afraid they don't show up well on the photo
I'll be back with more about Easter soon - and also some doodling I've ben having fun with!
Thanks for looking, Chris
ps I would love to wear heels like that!!

It is amazing how much a page changes with a little paint. Glad you had a good few days with your family, always sad when they disperse:)

Hey where did you get my photo from??
This is really clever Chris and I love the colours. Lindsay's Doo Lally Pip makes me smile and remember little sayings from years ago too.

A brilliant page... I think turning the magazine pic into a silhouette with black paint is a stroke of genius! Love the background, and heartily endorse the sentiment!!
