MADAME BUTTERFLY Another Altered Book Spread

Hi everone.

We were making paper dolls at the last class and it was real fun .

Heres another spread in my altered book which i have really enjoyed doing.
For these pages i used Red and Black acrylics sponged manically onto the pages.



I then took a large tag and painted it with Studio Acrylics and Distress inks.
Then applied a stencil and highlighted it in places with a white Ranger Pen and when it was dry cut it in half Length ways to form another layer and also a background.



I then made a paper doll to represent my version of Madame Butterfly.
Her Head dress, Ruff and bodice is made entirely from butterfly rubber stamps and Images that i manipulated in various ways until i had the effect i wanted.
I glued her to another paper doll that i never got round to finishing and then attached her to my page.


Heres a close up of Madame Buttetfly in all her glory
I hope you like her and i will post the finished spread later as i am going on to start another couple of pages and then come back to madame when i decide what to do to the other page.
