September Skinny Book Page

As usual, I am behind on my art obligations. I just finished my September skinny book page today. I needed inspiration, so I went to Etsy this morning and perused digital collage sheets. I bought a collage sheet that has the large dress form images. The theme for this month's book was artist choice and boy, I needed an artist choice theme today! The main image is a mermaid dress form. I used some pinkish scrapbook paper and applied the white sequin waste with diamond glaze. The sequin waste kinda reminds me of a net (thinking of the sea here!). The victorian scrap roses, fish and shell are available at Collage Stuff. I glued those down next. I glued the main image down on chipboard and used pop dots to pop it up a little. I used one of the tissue tapes from the Tim Hotlz Symphony tissue tapes to frame the edges. Easy!
The colors aren't quite right on this photo, but that happens with photos. I used a printed light aqua scrapbook paper and overstamped it with a text stamp using a beige Brilliance ink. It's very subtle. I cut another piece of scrapbook paper to back the main image. I glued down the main image. I added Seafoam Fleur Border German Scrap as shown and then more victorian scrap roses. I also finished the edges on this with the same tissue tape. Try as I might, I always get something crooked. I worked on getting the border strips straight and they refused! Maybe I was seeing crooked? Another skinny book page done! Woo hoo!
