I am so pleased to be part of this CJ on www.ukscrappers.co.uk. It is a Shakespeare CJ, and we all have different themes around the Shakespeare idea. I am the only one to choose a single play, but I just hink that there is so much you can do with 'Romeo and Juliet', becasue there have been so many interpretations of it over the years.

I bought these quickutz drama dies especially for this project, and am intending to use them on all my entries! Here I have reversed the eyes, nose mouth and then covered them with sepia glossy accents.

Alpahbet is QK Eliza, just perfect for this title, and then sepia glazed with glossy accents. The pp is Anna Griffin, out of my 'heritage' box!

The picture is downloaded from the internet. It is part of a painting of R&J by the pre-raphelite painter Sir Frank Dicksee. It has come out in with a wonderful 'aged' look, just right for this cover.

The 'frame' is from Paper Artsy.

Here I used my QK drama masks as stencils with brown ink.

Here's my entry. I found these wonderful 'e-postcard' images on the website for Baz Luhrman's 1997 film Romeo and Juliet. www.romeoandjuliet.com. I have used them to illustrate the light and dark themes of the play (I think!!), along with a few quotes.

Here's a detail view of my sign in page.

I am quite pleased with how this sign in page has turned out. Can you see it's supposed to be a balcony? I might just add a little R&J motif on the ballustrade.
