Feature Artist ~ Melisa Waldorf

AlteredPages is happy to Feature

Hello Everyone! I’m Melisa. I live in Humble TX with my wonderful hubby of 28 years. I work part-time as a nurse in an out-patient surgery center. It’s gorgeous here in TX with temps in the 70’s. I hope you girls have had time to thaw out. This time of year I especially love sitting out on the back patio on my days off to do bible study and watch the birds. As well as ride my bike.

I am currently designing with Pink Persimmon. I enjoy scrapbooking, stamping, and card making. I love mixed media and creating artist trading cards, altered art pieces, canvas’, and adding new pages to my art journals. There are sooooo many wonderful mediums to play with these days and I love getting my hands dirty trying new things, and sharing them on my blog Paperlicious Designs. The Altered Pages blog team comes up with so many fun idea’s and inspiration and I’m thrilled to be a guest designer for them. I hope you are inspired by some of my Pink Persimmon projects they will be sharing with you!

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…

Pretty Little Trees of all colors

Make adorable ornaments or decor items.

YOU can make the most colorful trees to fit your style and home.  Surprise someone with a color coordinated gift too!
I did different techniques for dyeing the sisal trees from AlteredPages.  We have 3 inch and 4 inch sizes in natural cream color available.

# 1 Technique used simple food coloring.  Yep, just like dyeing Easter Eggs!

I used an empty glass jar filled with water and dropped about 4 to 5 of green food coloring in and stirred it well.   I then placed a tree in the water.  The sisal is just like jute, so it absorbs the color easily.   I allowed it to be submerged for a minute and took it out.  The first dipping was paler than I wanted, so back into the water!

I did the same with red food coloring and added blue to the green for an aqua, as above.   Depending on how many drops of color you add to the water and how long you leave them submerged will determine the intensity of color.  Pull them out of the water after 30 seconds and check for …
