I joined a Fat Book swap at my LSS last spring. The theme was the letter "J." We each created our own cover and 12 identical pages - one for each participant. This is my cover: I wrapped gold embroidery thread around a letter "J" I made out of cardboard. I put "jewels" and other J items on the cover.
I chose Jellyfish & Jewels as my page. I covered the 6x6 chipboard with a piece of blue cellophane, then some yummy handmade paper with wonderful fiber in it and covered that with another piece of blue cellophane. The jellyfish bodies are pieces of glass (flat on one side & rounded on the other); the tentacles are beaded fringe. I attached a treasure chest filled with pearls & gold seed beads. The diver is an embossed stamp image on gray paper. The floor of the sea is torn sandpaper. There are real shells and other embellishments on the page.
This is a page done by another participant - she chose Junk as her page theme.
This participant chose Jumping Jack as her page theme. The Jumping Jack has movable arms & legs.
Now, why did I put this here?? Because I've joined an online Fat Book swap with my aMUSEme group. The book theme is Childhood Amusements...I have some ideas, but nothing has jelled yet, so I can't share with you what my page theme will be.
