Meet the Altered Pages Designers: Stephanie Siatta

On the very talented Altered Pages Design Team!
 We have many talented artists...
 
Today we are honored to introduce you to
another one of those amazing members of our team
Stephanie Siatta!
 
 She comes to us from Arizona!
 

I am so pleased to be able to use my art talents in a FUN and productive manner at AlteredPages.com. I am a wife, mom to 2 kids (that are growing up far too fast) and an artist. Like so many of us, I have worked at numerous jobs that did not allow my creative side to truly come alive. It certainly is a blessing to be a member of the Altered Pages design team where individual creativity is encouraged. I also own a home based business that specializes in medical transcription and this helps pay the bills and fund the huge stash of art supplies.

I have always loved creating. My first piece (a crayon drawing of our dog, Pudgy) was done when I was three. It still hangs in my mother’s home to this day. I was a member of the National Art Honor Society in High School and a highlight for me was being commissioned to create a one of a kind large scale painting for a new technology wing of the High School in my senior year.

I enjoy mixed media, assemblage, watercolor, acrylics and DIY projects. I love to refinish, repurpose and upcycle. Watercolor is my true love, however. I also enjoy teaching mixed media classes and bringing out the inner artist in people who doubt their creativity. I love the look on a student’s face when they realize they can do it! Anyone can create beauty…the first step is believing that.

Evil Libations!

Here is a kit created by Steph Vintage Topiaries available HERE at Altered Pages!!!
 
 
 
Happy May Day

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 …
