Guest Artist ~ Pam Bray

Altered Pages is very excited to welcome 
Pam Bray as our first Guest Design Artist!
Hi, I am excited to be a Guest Designer today....I live in Memphis, TN, home of blues and BBQ. I am a wife, mom of 4 and grandma to 9 very amazing grandchildren if I must say so myself.  
I have been scrapbooking for the last 15 years. I love paper crafting, altered projects, and card making, layouts, etc. The last few years I have been published in several magazines and am currently on several wonderful design teams.  I love Diet Coke and chocolate so they must be close at hand when I am creating. 
I would like to share my Window Book Chipboard Book I designed for SinCity Stamp using Graphic 45 French Country that you can get in Altered Pages Store.
I love that you get the squares with the Window Chipboard Book and used a couple of them to add photos to when I decide what I want to use my book for....
this little butterfly comes with the book along with other chipboard pieces...I punched out some circles from the French Country Collection, added a bling and then covered it in Glossy Accent.
I love hidden pockets, so I made one on my page....stamping with the Pam Bray's Fall Collection Stamp Set both the filigree and dragonflies...
 Here is the inside of my pocket, again using a stamped dragonfly from the stamp set.
All the sunflowers are fussy cut from the French Country paper with some being layered while others are just adhered in place. 
My favorite part of the French Collection is that it has a lot of paper that you can make your own fun embellishments and border elements for your projects. 
 I love Glossy Accent and love the dome shape it gives to my items.
Here is a closer look at SinCity Stamps Fall Collection Filigree....
I stamped my French Country paper after I applied it to the top of the page. 
Stamping a several dragonflies to blue paper from the collection, adding Glossy Accent to half of the dragonflies, once dry...fussy cut them out and adhere together at the body of the dragonfly so the wings can be lift up. 
 I always do my pages together so there is unity in the look of the book...
I added another pocket and added a few tags to my page making sure when I glued my sunflowers that I made sure not to glue the tops.
I love side few photos so you are able to see how the pages all flow together using the Graphic 45 French Country Collection from Altered Pages Store.
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial on my Home Sweet Home Chipboard Book and Fall Collection Stamps from SinCity Stamps using Altered Pages products, I encourage you to check out each of their stores. Hugs Pammejo

 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.
