I have had an email from Rita to say she has received my pages at last, so I can now show you the pages I did for her.
I started with a A4 sheet of blue card that I cut in half and painted Jade. I thought if it was blue to start with and the paint lifted at all it would look nice. I then found that I had made them about a half inch too small! so I used some of the paper I had set by to use and stitched a frill along the bottom of each page.
On this first page I painted a red area and then stamped a lady onto some fibres using my iron to fuse them and attached this to the painted area. A strip of the same paper was added to the side with a red tassel.
On the second page I used paper with an oriental theme of flying dancers. I took one of the dancers and set her in a frame with some clear sealer. Added a bit more Jade paper some oriental lettering that I had lifted from a sheet with clear tape and a red tassel to finish.
I then added on the back of the first page some more of the papers that I had used with the dictionary definition of Jade and Oriental as that was the colours and theme I had to go by. I don't seem to of taken a photo of the back of the second page, but that only had my information on so you wouldn't want to see that anyway.
I packed both pages up and put them into this envelope and then a normal padded envelope ready to post.
If you look close Elizabeth you will see I used the paper you sent my 12 days in on these pages as it was just what I was looking for colour wise.
Thanks for reading,
