Silver Belle

The theme for Linda's pages is "Silver Belle" -- (using an image of a woman renowned for her beauty -- also using silver in the composition)
This was a struggle. I kept adding more and more and more -- it's a bit fuller than usual for me. What I struggle with most is balance. If I don't get balance right off the bat, I keep adding little thinks to achieve (visual) balance. Then, all of a sudden, I tip the scale and it has too many little bits. Then it didn't look silvery enough so I added the glitter. Then I remember that many people don't like glitter in their books. I hope that you're okay with glitter, Linda!!! After all, it's silver glitter...........I chose an image of Marie Antoinette. La Belle Femme. She'll be featured throughout the week in a few different spreads for different RRs.

p.s 43 more days until moving day. Oh Crap. It's getting close. Less art. More pack.

I think you did very well with the balance; it's a beautiful spread.

I don't know if I've left you a comment before but you have my utmost sympathy over the upcoming move. The thought of trying to pack and move again (we've only been here 4 years) just makes me shudder. And the art-making time lost.. oh the horrors!
