Creative Saturday..... I'm Shopping Bag and Sweet Potato

~Happy Saturday,
~Wow I actually have had a creative afternoon, so now I'm sitting here blogging and watching some TV, yay!!!! Anyway I thought I'd share:

~I started a self-portrait, using the idea from the lovely Julie-Ann (scroll down to her interview), but mine is slightly different!!!! I've used some newspaper and tissue for the papermache, then painted over the top (i mixed MM paints shopping bag and sweet potato). Next I plan to use a thin tissue over the top of that, and then I'll start on the hair!!! Not sure what I'm doing yet, but I'll certainly keep you updated:
~I have also started on the main pages of my Ugly Beauty Bible, the first few pages are dedicated to SJP, she's like a style goddess!!!!! Anyway here are the pages:
~And lastly a layout:
~I used BG Porcelain for this, and finally scrapped some of my Malta photos from almost 2 years ago!!!! What do you think??? I'm quite pleased with how it came out, and I love these 2 photos - they are some of my faves.

~Anyway hopefully I'll get some time to do something creative in the week to share with you next week. I'll be back tomorrow with Getting to know you Sunday.
~love, Vicki xx

Great start to your papermache doll. I can't wait to see what she looks like painted and with hair - the possibilities are endless. I like your idea and the 2 pages of your Ugly Beauty Bible - and your layout looks interesting. Great work! I enjoy this.
