Fat Book Pages - Driven & Retro

Fat Book Page: Driven - Front View

For the Fat Book Swap, the first page is to be of a Driven Woman.
I chose Oprah. I pulled the photo of Oprah off the internet,
and touched her up in Photoshop. I gave her some golden highlights - she is a goddess, after all!
I ran some patterned paper through my printer and created the 'Oprah is Driven' background.
Once again I used the vellum from World Win papers for my quote and the images. Dang this stuff is awesome!!!

Driven - Back

Stamps used: Hero Arts Italian Poetry.
I heat embossed with Gold.

Fat Book Page: Retro (Women in Ads from the 1950's - 1970's)

This image came from one of Roni's helpful links! (Roni is the hostess of the Fat Book Swap).
I touched up this gal's necklace with a gold spica pen and added and a big ol' pearl.
She is a Diva, don't you think?
For each of the pages I added a funky retro pin. They are all different (my fave is one that says 'trophy wife'!).

Scan of Front and Back of the Retro Page

The back has some Glitter Mist sprayed on glossy card stock.
I also painted the edges (front) with some pearly MM paint!

Stamps used: Front 'You Go Girl' (from Michaels)
Back: Flourish from Purple Onion Designs, and Coco Chanel quote from Bella.


The above are my entries for this months Fat Book Swap. As mentioned last month, we create 2 designs a month, 10 of each design. July is our second month and we have a total of 5 months!

The pages are 4x4 little collages/ATCs. Hopefully the other gals will start posting theirs so I can see them! It's fun to see everyone's take on the themes... One gal shared her Driven. She chose 'Driving Miss Daisy'! I had to laugh - that was my first choice as well!

To learn more about the Fat Book Swap, visit Roni at Inkstains! Be sure to click on her header to go to current posts as well. Roni gives tons of cool tutorials and product reviews! Right now she is sharing 'Mica'.

Catch you all later!

A fat book is something I am not familiar with! These pages are too cool! Kerilou
