Lesson 13 was Cutouts & Cutaways. The page was cut in places to create doors, and when opened....
....you see part of the next page. This lesson was fun. The buttons I used to hold the shutters closed have a removable clip, so I can take them out until I finish the journal. That way I won't have to fight the bulge they leave.
Lesson 14 was Building Character.
Two things happened with this lesson, that I didn't plan. One, I was selecting and cutting out my collage items when I was away from home, and didn't have Pam's book with me. After I got home, I realized I was supposed to use black & white copies, and cut the items into squares or shapes rather than trim around the lines.
I didn't want to start over, so I went with what I'd already prepared. I'll try to use this lesson's technique in a later lesson.
The second thing that happened was that the page looks like a political statement. My gal looks a little bit 'barefoot' and pregnant', and she's busting out of a traditional-official-type building. Even when I was writing the text, I didn't realize it (I think because I was working on Lesson 13 at the same time, and concentrating on the logistics of what the doors would show). The next day, I did a bit of a double-take. Was this subconcious or just serendipity? I don't know, but I like it.
