New York, and some awesome arty finds

Thank you for traveling across the USA with us this month at Altered Pages--I have a super New York collage sheet to show you today, and am sharing some fun Altered Pages inspiration, as well.

First, check out the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty on this collage page.  Are you thinking POP UP CARD, too???
There are supplies a plenty to complement any travel themed project, but one of my favorite Altered Pages treasures is the Transit Tokens, which are PERFECT for New York!  I have quite a stash of them;  here is a pic of one used in the Summer By The Sea book--
These tokens are a special way to add an authentic vintage touch to any project.  My favorite way to attach them?

Well, the ones with the spaces in them, like the token above, I use the Lightbulb Safety Pins, or a bit of beautiful Sari Silk Ribbon is always gorgeous.


There are also a couple of stamp sets with some great travel images, both from Glitz--the ferris wheel in the Afternoon Muse Set would be a perfect New York Wheel,

and the Glitz Happy Travels set, the title pretty much says it all!
Happy creating, everyone!
