I loved making this book!  Almost all of this book is made with items you can get at the Altered Pages Store online.  I will point out the items, and give you the links page by page.  I am going to give you the general link, so you can see all the choices you have!

First, the cover.
I started with a book from Glitz Designs.  I covered it with Vintage Text Pages,and stenciled on that with white ink.  That is the link to all the stencils Altered Pages has so you can find all the stencils I used on this book there.  I covered the center with Joss Paper.  I got the Altered Art Pack of Tags and used them throughout the book.  The Glass Tiles and  Sari Ribbon were added and of course, gauze and a flower.

Again I used stencils and Joss Paper.  I also painted the pages with Niji Pearlescent Watercolors.  The Library Cards and Pockets are super fun for books!

These pages are painted, then text paper was added.  I used the Altered Art Tags here too.  I added some flowers and gauze.

Painted, Joss Paper on the left and a stencil on top.  On the right, I painted and doodled some white dots.  The Altered Art Tags were used on both sides and another Library Card and Pocket.

Painted and stenciled again.  Altered Art Tags too.  But I also put a kraft Paper Clock.

Finally, I finished with Text Paper, Altered Art Tags and Paint.

Thanks for visiting today!  I hope you find the links helpful, and maybe you will even check them out!!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
