Humument Pages Swap - Part 1

Recently I hosted a swap of Humument Pages at the commune "Follow Your Arts" (in Israel).
You can read more about Humument here, it's very inspiring.
Usually, one page is chosen from a book for all the participants in the swap to pull a sentence out of the same text.
Naturally, each one of them comes up with a specific sentence and decorates the page accordingly.
This swap was different. I found old books and gave the participants pages to work on - from the same book but different pages.
Actually, there were two books - one in Hebrew and one in English.
The result was indeed surprising.
Each participant found several sentences and decorated each page accordingly, all pages different from each other.
I created 9 pages, using various techniques.
First, I chose a specific sentence in each page and marked it with a black pen.
Then I attached the old book pages to CS to make them sturdier.
I colored the whole pages, except for the chosen sentences, with Antique White acrylic paint.
I distressed the edges with Ranger's Vintage Photo distress ink.
I created a collage by adhering images (cut out of recycled magazine pages) according to the subject of each sentence.
I stampe an antique text stamp from Tim Holtz Urban Grunge clear stamp set.
This enhances the fact that although covered by paint, the main issue here is the text itself.
I also stamped the antique text on the back of the CS, where I added the swap's details.

Here are my first 3 pages. I'll post the next pages in the following days.
Page 1 - the sentence is:
"Lulu's hand didn't make dinner."

Page 2 - the sentence is:
"Sascha talked to single women naked"

Page 3 - the sentence is:
"I eat whenever I'm not hungry because It's a relief"
Later on I'll take all the pages, mine and the other participants', and bind them together to create an interesting Humument booklet.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed. Have a creative day! Dorly
