Collage in Blue

One of my very favorite things to do is collage.
I love paper and images.
 
 
 
 Altered Pages has lots to chose from when it come to images!
I especially love the color groupings they have. 
For this collage I used pieces of chipboard that I have around,
and decided on BLUE as its is one of my favorite colors.
And included lots of KUNZE German Scrap for some bling!
 
 
The first step is to gather all the materials you will need.
I like having it all around me, so I can have lots to pick from.
I begin by doing the smaller collages on smaller pieces of
chipboard.  (Around an ATC size)  I had already selected
the larger piece in the middle.  This is one of my own
digital collages. (yes I love digital collage too) 
So I started to construct the full piece with the digital
collage in the middle. There are three larger pieces
underneath as the foundation that holds the rest of the
collage.   These pieces have just a general background color.
 
 
 
Now you start to layer your collage with images that speak to you!
I try placing the images around, and keep doing it until I like it.
I also go around the final collage with ink...to finish it off.
I finally add the KUNZE German Scrap and its complete!
And if you feel overwhelmed at the size....start SMALL.
The example above is the size of an ATC.
(it includes an inchie for texture!)
 
Keep going and keep trying different combinations of images to achieve the look you like. Once you have all the individual pieces you can glue them to the three foundation chipboards.
 
I hope you give this a try!! And once again please
come visit Facebook Altered Pages  and
show us your creations!! And thank you for looking!
 
 
SUPPLIES:

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 …
