Merel's The Portrait of SELF


All the girls who have worked in this book have added there own self portrait.
I did a lot of pockets and details with pull out's in these pages so there are a lot of close up shots!

Pages 1 & 2 for Merel's RR journal.

Pages 1 & 2 details:
I added the red heart with vintage book text to a small golden locket that had a pic of me in it, the little tape talk pocket has a little pull out tag with kids on it and a mother of pearl bead with vintage book text
Pages 2 & 3 for Merel's RR journal.


Pages 3 & 4 details:
A 2 sided fabric pillow tag pulls out of crescent moon pocket. A little pic pf me with the reverise side has my name. The Red heart has some batting behind it so its a little puffy and there is a vinyl 2 sided pull out tag behind it.

I had fun working in this book I just got it on Saturaday... this is a new world record for me!!!
