All The World's A Stage LFB

I created this Little Fat Book page last night for my "Curtain Call" LFB swap. I knew I would be swapping them out today and wanted to be able to participate even though life has been incredibly hectic. I wasn't sure what would come together, if anything, because I was so exhausted, but I managed this. I played with some images from a collage sheet I purchased from Lisa's Altered Art, some old book paper, Making Memories acrylic frame, Tim Holtz adage ticket and game spinner, printed tissue paper, sequin trim, a print out of a stage, and some new Golden Mediums and Molding Pastes from a sampler box I bought at Michael's. My favorite thing about the backside was using the old paper, which was a page out of Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet. I mixed red paint into light molding paste and gooped up the edges and then stamped with bubble wrap for some interest and texture. But what was even more fun was picking out words in the play to put a box around with fine line marker and then color in to highlight. I almost made my own poem out of the highlighed words in the text: "Henceforth, Juliet, is my lady. Too bold the fairest stars, her eyes were stars."
