One of the online art groups to which I belong has a 'mingle' in which participants are to make 1 altered 5x 7in, page for each of three people. This is one of the pages I made. Don't know which one is going to receive it, I have two more pages in various stages of completon.
For this one I started with 90# vellum finish Bristol board. I used Tim Holtz Distress Pants on a craft sheet, Then the paint was spritzed with water and the page dragged through it. When it was dry I used a stencil with Ranger Texture paste to create the floral pattern. When it was dry I used Iced Spruce Distress ink and then dusted the raised pattern with Forever Green Perfect Pearls..The ferns were stamped with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink, and embossed with Ranger Sticky Powder and then had Bronze foil applied. Branches in the upper right corner were stamped with Mowed Lawn DIstress ink, then Forever Green Perfect Pearls brushed on. The whole page was edged with Mowed Lawn Distress ink, then Pearl Perfect Pearls brused over that.
Finally, a bird image was cut out and perched on a piece of Crepe Myrtle bark from one of my trees
I hope you like it.
