I received from heini yesterday, and I love all it's pinky goodness!

It says:  CREATE a work of art.  And the back has a hammered gold metal heart which I love. 




And she sent me some other paper goodies, that I plan to use in the cover of my chunky book.


Thanks so much heini and to everyone that swapped with me!!

Loving all the spectacular pages being posted!!


PurpleHeather sent me the coooolest anatomical heart page!!  She felted the heart with her embellisher machine (oh I know I must need one of those......) then sewed on the coaxial cable with the frayed copper ends for the "veins"!!!  It pops up off the page, which is rather fortuitous as I'm currently making an installation out of all the heart art I've collected (as I told purple, I would feel real "heartless" squishing this one up in a book Wink)  Luckily she had some pics that I could borrow as I have no good camera at the moment....


under the heart "hardwired for love"

the back


thanks PurpleHeather Grin

I can't wait to see your pages PH!  I hope that people will post whatever means they come up with to display these pages too -- books, wall hangings, installations, whatever!  We want to see the goods!

At the moment they are all along my mantelshelf - a lovely shelf with cutout hearts and diamonds my dad made me when I was younger, and it is great to have all my chunky book pages on it.  (Though at the moment they are obscured by birthday cards, which are soon to become further collage fodder!)

I was lucky enough to get a personal swap with Phizzy and here is the wonderful page she sent:





She was also kind enough to include some funky measuring tape I was fond of in one of her earlier pages:



Thanks Phizzy!!!!
