This is the gorgeous tag done by the owner of Altered Pages, our very own Jean Moore.  Isn't it fantastic?  Here is how she created this beautiful work of art....I created a tag from AP Back Bay Postcard tags.  First I used Duo adhesive and copper foil to create a random background.Then I fancy cut images from several collages, adding gentle foiling as well. I then adhered them allowing the leaves to curl upward for 3D effect. ...I then typed the words in a deep brown and tore them from the paper. I swept them with the Blottter ink pad. I added a die cut chipboard flourish which I finger painted with green patina and added some gold with my fingers. I tied the greens with burgundy embroidery floss for another 3D effect. I hope you like it!
We love it Jean!  Be sure to leave a comment and tell Jean what you think of the tag she has shared with all of us, too.

Rolling with my Gel Press

I love experimenting with different ways to create texture and interest on my Gel Press and for many years now I have turned to fun foam to help do this when monoprinting.  I love to team the fun foam with my dies to create my own stamps and texture plates.  I used this techniques for my prints in January that I shared here on the blog. There are lots of dies that have detail, meaning lots of scrap pieces which you can randomly stick onto cardboard giving you a stamp as well as using the actually die cut shape as a stamp.  Another idea is using them attached to a toilet roll to create a brayer like roller was shared at my local scrapbook store and on a video by Birgit Koopsen last year.  I love playing with this method. The toilet roll is slipped over a paint roller handle.

Here you can see some of my texture creations that I have on hand for my play today.

One texture I love is created using a piece of burlap ribbon, which I have stuck onto a toilet roll. My first layer above used th…

The Gift Card Card

Robin here and today I have a project for you that is a fun way to give gift cards or cash.  

You will need two envelopes for this project.  One is what the post office calls the 6 1/4 Commercial envelope.  When I was growing up we just called it a letter envelope.  It's a smaller rectangle than the #10, being just 3 5/8" x 6 1/4".  The other is a standard A6.  I chose the A6 because it fits inside the letter envelope when it's folded in half and it's also large enough to hold a check or cash, as well as a gift card.

With the flap against the body of the envelope, fold it in half from side to side.  Cut the flap in half and trim the inside cuts at an angle so that they don't interfere with the fold or get bunched up. 

Decorate the flap side of your envelope.  This will be the inside of your card.  Fold the envelope again and decorate the side that will be the front of your card.

Cut a panel of card stock to fit inside the 6 1/4 Commercial (letter) envelope.  Att…
