He was my hero lo

This lo was published in August 2010 issue of SNR magazine

This lo was a GEM OF THE WEEK of 5/17 on Scrapbooking challenges blog- thanks!!
My DT challenge on GINGERSNAP CREATIONS was " read"- any kind, any way..
Also to use some letters stamp or some book page was an easy way- I decided to do a lo about a book.. And about " the book"- The Little prince by Antuane de Saint- Exepury was my ultimate choice and here it is- my He was my hero lo
My hero- both of them- the writer and a prince. I knew to quote every single page of this book - first the Russian translation, then the English and later the Hebrew one. I tried to read the French original- but my 3 years of highschool French was not enough- so I dropped the idea.
This is a pure non photo lo and here are the products:
AC light grey cardstock, Adornit pp(the sky), one stamp (" Draw me... ), paper rose, Pink paislee letters, some brads and lots of techniques.
I used some gesso and some recycled tissue paper for the " planet", pEper piecing of digi print for the prince,I printed the book cover on 5 languages,
used paints for the sea and the sky, distressed the alphas,
inked the covers, stamped the sheap and heat embossed it with dimentional white paint and did some journaling about the book I found on WIKIPEDIA
The digi cut of the plane is for the writer whose plane was missed over the sea in 1944.
And for the challenges:
Paints (the sky- sea- plane) for Scrap outside the box
Nothing new for Scrapfit
Not a card for My stampimg royalty
Sanding for Frosted designs- the letters are all sanded
