All Woman - Somewhere in Time - BoBunny

Hello Everyone

I have a double pager to share with you today! This is really rare, as I really don't do much double pagers anymore.  But I was asked for this DT assignment and I am actually so happy, because I am thrilled with how it came out.  

This double pager is also up on the BoBunny Blog where we are showing the beautiful Somewhere in Time Collection.  It's a bit vintage, a bit steampunky and just gorgeous!

So here is my double pager.

I had recently done a canvas which I shared on my blog, for the BerryBleu71 challenge about Marilyn.  It was while I was researching her a little, that I found these amazing photo's and also some wonderful quotes.

 She was not a size 8 and had beautiful curves, definitely "All Woman" and she was not afraid to show her curves! So this page is about celebrating being a woman and loving who you are, whether you are a size 8 or not!!

I found quite a number of Marilyn Monroe quotes that were absolutely fabulous and I used one here, which I really loved - "I don't mind living in a man's world as long as I can be a woman in it".  My journaling says: I love that she was a full figured woman and was so very beautiful.  I love that she was all woman!"

I did some stencilling and gesso work and then added some paints, stamping and then some cogs.  I also did a lot of fussy cutting of the blooms, which are absolutely gorgeous!

Below is a close-up of the journalling.
