Vintage GlueBook Page Swap
I received my pages from Mary Green's Vintage Gluebook Page swap and they're all wonderful! Six big, beautiful pages! Along with the pages, Mary sent a vintage book to enclose them and a package of vintage paper. I love the cover that Mary chose for me...The Bobbsey Twins in the Great West. I used to love to read this series when I was young and here I am now living in the "great west." She couldn't have picked a more perfect cover for me! Thank you Mary for this great swap. And thank you to everyone who played in it. Here are the pages I received:
First off is a page from Linda M. I love how she's layered old text with vintage wallpaper...so pretty!
Next, is a page from Kathy M. This is my one card featuring a male image. I love how the old text and colors she chose complement the image.
This page from Kim S. has such gorgeous color and the image of the young girl is so striking!
This sweet page from Sabrina makes me smile. I love the two different images she's used of a group of children playing and how she added touches of red to the page. You know I love red!
Irene W. used one of my favorite images that Mary's shared with us. I love her wistful expression. She looks so pretty against the background Irene created for her.
Susan's page looks like it came right out of an old book. I love how she tore the focal image and added it to the background then surrounded it with flowers...lovely!
And here's my cover. I haven't put my book together yet. I'm going to add few things to fatten it up.
If you love the idea of making something lovely and vintage using only paper, glue and scissors be sure to check out Mary's new class starting next week. It's called My Christmas Gluebook. I can't wait to get started!
