A couple of months ago I mentioned that I'd post a slide presentation of the pages in the book which I completed for Revel In The Moment, showing each page in its first stage, with collage. With the collage completed, the book is now prepped and ready for additions. Things painted in and things painted out, drawing, doodling, stencils, text, journaling, and more can now be added to these backdrops. Usually I work a page from start to finish, but I got caught-up with the collage in this book, and chose to just run with it.
I'll post another slide of the pages when they have been worked and completed. I'll probably post both videos side by side, this one and the next, so you can see the transformation.
I created this slide presentation in iPhoto, converted it to a QuickTime video, and uploaded it to Vimeo. I've done this successfully many times in the past, but this time I had to upload it over and over again, five or six times. Each time something different was changed, left out, or the video skipped. It totally ignored my smooth dissolves and each page now cuts abruptly, one to the next. Finally I just settled on the version above, but I noticed that every once in awhile the first page would be skipped during replay. Just in case it doesn't appear in the presentation, I've included it below. Next time I might use Picassa instead of Vimeo.
Every page in this book has meaning that is very personal to me alone. My interpretation would be a reflection of what is inside me. What you see in my collage is a reflection of what's inside of you.
Maybe I'll take a page or two every now and then and talk about my thought process as the page was created. You don't have to read those posts, of course. They might be bore you. But if you're interested, some of this collage tells some very interesting stories from the pages of my life.
