Another spread finished for the Sketchbook Project 2012

I am showing my age here - I grew up with Elizabeth and she was so very beautiful as a young girl and woman.  Glamour, fame, happiness, sadness, marriages, divorces, good health, bad health - she experienced so much in her life!

First I adhered old book pages down and added some gesso over the text to tone it down a bit.  A small picture of Liz clipped from a newspaper was added.  Then I used several rubber stamps to create a background, using violet ink to reference her eye color. 

Thanks for visiting.  Have a wonderful weekend.

Really lovely pages, and a perfect sentiment - I think she kindled the fire in a many a red blooded male! Beautiful stamps and background and the colour is perfect as a reminder of her unusual eye colour..
