Anyone who knows me, also knows that when it comes to ripping pages out of a book, I have to read that page first, otherwise I just feel really guilty.
I'm currently playing along with another challenge where the theme is
however, thanks to one of my friends who kindly gave me some torn pages a while ago, I feel under no obligation to read them first, as someone else has ripped them out.
I'm not sure how or why this is different - it just is!
The page in question has a number of dictionary type meanings regarding mythology,
and I thought this was a perfect image given 'Styx', 'Acheron' and 'Cocytus' are on this page.
I stamped "Smushallaum" in 'jet black' Archival Ink and painted her with Silks Acrylic Glaze in various colours.
I tore the edges of the book page to fit a regular card and finger painted them, but it didn't quite look right; so I took off a smidgen more and layered it on another piece of cardstock that I hole pierced and did a bit of faux stitching. A little piece of muslin under both ends gave it a bit more oomph!
Stampotique - "Smushallaum"
I hope my swap partner likes what I've created - I wonder what I'll get in return?
