JUNE 1 IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko Partners!

We have been waiting for this day!   IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko has the most fantastic line of products.   We at AlteredPages are proud to carry many of the Tsukineko items in our inventory.   This month will be amazing and worth seeing each day on both Blogs.   We will link to IMAGINE Crafts Blog, so please visit daily to see the incredible projects from the IMAGINE Crafts Design Team led by John Creighton Petersen.

I had so much fun deciding what to do.   I experimented with some products I had not used and will share weekly with you what I come up with.  I have another project started already and will work to complete it in steps for your viewing.

My first weekly item is a monoprint collage.   I played with fun foam and RADIANT NEON ink pads.   I liberally coated the fun foam with RADIANT NEON ink several times in two colors (electric orange and electric yellow).


I also added the Delicata Gold Glitz reinker simply dropped onto the foam.  You have to look closely, however I also used t…

Falling Leaves ATCs

Hi Everyone!  It's Danie here today!  Haven't the ATB Block projects been fabulous this month?  I actually don't have one to share today as the mail hasn't reached me in time downunder so instead I have been playing with some of the new Ink Products that are available at Altered Pages from IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko.

This year our Autumn has been one of the warmest on record for a number of years across the country and apart from the odd night or two we have not needed a jumper or overly warm clothing, which I love however  I am envious of those in much cooler climates who get to experience the magnitude of colors of a true autumn with falling leaves and crisp nights as the closest I get to such a sight is via the internet. So as we bid farewell to our Autumn here in Australia I decided to make some Falling Leaves ATC's.

Double Decker Birdhouse with Altered Trading Blocks

If you've been following along this month, you already know that Altered Pages has partnered with The Artists on the Block, sharing our Altered Trading Block creations, aka, ATBs.  These fun, easy to alter, blocks are made with Eileen Hull's Sizzix block dies.  
As this is the last Thursday of the month, I believe I am the last to submit my creation.  However, while I have had very tough acts to follow this month, I am so excited to present my double-decker bird house.  Can you see the tenants inside?  I had my husband hold a flashlight and shine it into the hole so I could take a picture. I apologize for having so many pictures, but I had to become a bit of a building engineer to figure out how to put this together.  Hopefully, I can be less wordy by sharing a few more pictures instead.  
The bottom deck was made using Eileen Hull's SizzixBox, Square XL die, measuring 3-1/4" square.  The top deck was made using Eileen's SizzixBlock/Cube/Bank 3-D XL die, measuring 1-…
