Welcome to February!

Where does the time go?  The holidays have blown by, Creativation has come and gone!  Valentines Day is almost here! This month the Altered Pages Design Team will be using the Pantone color of the year: GREENERY!

Hopefully you can see the "Greenery" on my collage!

Canvas Board
Large sheet music
Black ink
Mailbox Muse Paris stamps - Eiffel Tower
Gel medium
Vintage Text
Gelato - Green
Water Brush
White Flowers
Heart Pins
Paris words
Gold Design Stickers

On a Canvas Board paint a light green background using Gelato - Green and a  Water Brush. 

While the canvas board dries, stamp the Mailbox Muse Paris stamps - Eiffel Tower with Black ink on tissue.  So the ink will not run on the tissue, prepare the tissue by spraying it with an aerosol hairspray and let it dry before stamping.

With gel medium start layering paper on the Canvas Board, first the Vintage Text.

Then add a bit of large sheet music,  the words Paris and the stamped tissue.  Set aside to dry.

While the collaged papers are drying paint the white flowers green with the Gelato - Green and a  Water Brush, let dry.

Add a dash of Glitter  with the gel medium to the bottom of the canvas.

The Gold Design Stickers finish the top of the canvas.

Add the final embellishments Heart Pins and painted flowers with glue! 


  1. I wondered about the best way to color those flowers. Yours look great. It's a pretty project.

  2. You did a fantastic job of making Greenery Standout! The total canvas is so very lovely.
