Altered book Swap for Marie Antoinette Mail art group


Doesn't this cupcake look yummy? It is one of my pages for Corrine's cutest book for the Marie Antoinette Mail Art group swap. We are sending our books around the country having each other do pages in them. I did this page for Corrine by making circles from cardstock and gluing them on like icing. I added glitter, ribbon and roses with a banner that says, "Let them eat cake".


This page is the second one. I used ruffled crepe paper, german glass glitter and then collaged with postcard, vintage lace, and one of my favorite Marie style images.

I also got to finish my pages for Rona's book for the swap as well.


This first one I used silk Rose petals and a piece of Vintage lace. Then I layered an image of Marie and some roses over the roses. I added glitter and paper roses as well.

This next page is my second one in Rona's book.


I used a background cardstock with cupcakes all over it. I added a collaged image of Marie with a cupcake and embellished it with glitter rhinestones.

I had alot of fun doing these and can't wait to get the rest of them! If you have never been a part of an art swap like this you really should go for it! talk to ya soon! And Happy Memorial Day!
