It has been quite a looooooooooong time since I participated in a swap. This swap is a "Skinny Book" (due to the 4x7 inch pages) with a Summer Theme. Both the front and back side of the page is to be decorated.
The backgrounds on the both the front and back are acrylic paints. Some have acrylic stenciling and all have overstamping with rubber stamp images.
I decorated the fronts of my pages with a variety of images that shouted "SUMMER!" :) I added German Scrap, buttons, glitter, tops of wine capsules, White Sailor Pen doodling, shells, beads, and just about anything else I could find laying around! :)
On the backs, I glued down one summer image and then wrote out lyrics (again with the White Sailor Pen) to "summer-themed" songs. Beach Boys songs, Under the Boardwalk, Hot Time Summer in the City, School's Out for Summer, etc etc etc.
Hope my partners enjoy their pages! Eventhough I stressed over getting the pages done, I really enjoyed this swap!! :)
