This was a Marilyn Monroe themed altered book. And the book we actually were working in was a biography about Marilyn. This was also the FIRST book I worked in other than my own and was very basic in terms of altering. I drew some designs on the page and then painted the whole rest of the pages a purple color, so that the words of the book showed through the designs. I added some bling for detail
and then added some pictures from the night she sang to John F. Kennedy. I also added a little biographical detail in reference to the quote "the late Marilyn Monroe" (she was running VERY LATE!) All in all I was happy with how this turned out for my first spread in someone else's book.
I did a second page about the dress she wore that night. I printed and collaged pictures from that night along with a cool photo I found that someone had altered. I added stickles and liquid glass mixed together on top of that image to make the dress sparkle as it would have in person. I added some more quotes and details and then the title was done with Liquid Applique. Oh painted background of course.
