copper "family" tip-in ab page

the double page spread was done in response to the color "copper" for a tip-in swap. i used the theme of family, as family is extremely important to me. the outer edges of the paper have been stamped w/ ink and then sprinkled w/ embossing powder, which melts when heated w/ a heat gun.

the tag on the upper right says "family" w/ the letters stamped on little copper "coins" and is sewn together in layers. the lower left is just a brown block of paper to be used as a mat for a family photo of the person who received my page in the swap.

on the right side, the quote says "the voice of parents is the voice of gods, for to their children they are heaven's lietenants" taken from shakespeare's work. on the lower right, i punched the year 2005 into a sheet of copper and glued on to the page.

when this person received the pages, then all he or she would have to do is glue on a picture of the family and have a completed and personal page. i was happy w/ it and intended to make one for my family, but just didn't get around to duplicating the page for myself.
