strong

Challenge #3 over at The Craft Barn is to use strong and/or miss in a quote or lyric.
After some thought it suddenly dawned to me: strong woman.
So I printed pictures of strong woman throughout history, needless to say that there are plenty: Marie Curie, Queen Victoria, Florence Nightingale, Jane Austen, Oprah, JK Rowling, Anna Frank,…
and glued them to a gelli printed background.
Because my page was already filled with the images I decided to make it a double page spread (luckily I had also a ghost print) and add the quote on the other side.
I cut out different letters from magazines, because the woman images reminded me of a magazine spread, as first letter of each word.



I’m going to try and make a page with miss this weekend, I already have it in my head, now just find the time to execute it J

  6. Cool idea to use strong women to depict your very good quote. Good luck with page two. Two pages is beyond me.

    1. I don't set out to do 2 pages each time, but if I find a suitable quote, have inspiration and time I do.

  8. Oh how beautiful. I like how you used some "ransom letters" to add to the quote. Of course, all those images complete the spread and compliment the quote, too.
