~Vintage Glue Book Swap with Mary of Green Paper~

 A While Back I received an Email
from Mary of Green Papers Inviting Me 
to Participate in Her 
Vintage Glue Book Swap.
 She was Inviting all of her Students 
that took her Wonderful
I couldn't turn down another Opportunity
to have Fun Making these pages.
 Mary's Class was 
the Very First Class
I took in Mixed Media Art.
She taught me all of the Basics 
in Making and Creating Beautiful Collages!
 Her Course Challenged me 
to Try so many  New Things!
Chalk, Matte Gel Medium...and Gesso!
What the World is Gesso??! 
Tape Transfer ???????What..?
 My First Collage...... Oh My......
She was so Sweet and
Encouraging with her Comments.
"Wow...I would Have Never thought of doing that....."
I am Teasing! She didn't say that! 
She was Kind!
 I feel like I have come a long way 
since that first piece. 
I think that I still have  
Much More Room for 
Growing and Trying New Things!
 Theses Pages where so Much Fun to Create!
Now they get mailed off to Mary
where she will assemble a Book for Me.
Not Just Me but all Who Participated. 
Each of will receive a Book 
with an assortment of Collage pages 
from various participants.
Quite an Undertaking for Mary I think!
She only asked for an Extra Page
to keep for herself. 
(Of Coarse there was a Small Fee
for Materials for Book Assemblage)
I Hope she shares that book on her blog!
I am sure it will be Gorgeous!
 On the Back of each page 
we were asked to provide our
Email and Blog address.
When My Book Arrives 
I will Be sure to share it with you all!

Have a Wonderful Day 
My Friends!

Oh Jill, I just LOVE your artwork!!!! Everything you create is so beautiful ~ I bet the books Mary assembles are going to BE GORGEOUS! I finally realized that those beautiful prints came from your blog sweetie. I've been investigating the artist too! I just love that genre of artwork, the time period of those artists and their work makes me swoon. I hope you are doing so good dear friend and still treasure your sweet gifts!!! hugs and love, Dawn

Oh I hope I get one of your pages -- they are spectacular. I had a fun time with the swap too. Can't remember if I posted the pages I made or not.... if I haven't I'll probably hold off until after the deadline.

Hi Jill these pages are just simply gorgeous - your pages are filled with softness and romance - sheer beauty. I am looking forward to seeing them in a book - how great is that? So can you tell me the name of the artist who painted the woman on your header? It looks like it comes from the pre-raphaelite era???
