Inaugural Altered Box Swap

Hi, I’m Marilyn, and I’ll be your hostess for the Inaugural AlteredPages-Artsociates Altered Box Swap.  Okay, first, the particulars.  The theme is Housewives and you will need a box ( Altered Pages does carry some HERE ) to create your project (you can use a small empty cereal, jewelry box, or other box).  Please keep the box to no larger than 5 x 7 x 1.5 inches which will enable us to send using Priority Mail Flat Rate.  Below is the 3-1/8” square box that will be included in a package you can purchase (see below).   We do ask that since this swap is being hosted by Altered Pages , that you use some of their products (they have some great Digital Collages that fit the Housewives theme)  in the creation of your box.    Jean from Altered Pages has put together a Special Package for this swap, but it is not required that you purchase it.  You can see it HERE .  The package includes one 3-1/8” square box, a collage, Graphic 45 Domestic Goddess Tags, UHU glue, & miscellaneous

Altered Box...Bloom

Hi everyone ! Eunice here , just wanted to share a little project I completed using the little Shadow Box  from Altered Pages ! I enjoy creating little "scenes" & these little boxes are perfect for that ! I covered the inside & outside of the box using Glitz paper ( adorable line ) ! Has that worn vintage look ! I had three little wood spools that needed a home , so I created ever so tiny flowers from sheet music paper and used vintage buttons for the centers , all on a wire and glued into the spool , there you go ...instant garden ! Made a little banner out of paper and stamped the word "BLOOM" on it and of course glittered the edges for some sparkle ! I added some vintage buttons and seam binding to the front On the side of the box I used some tape to add some interest ! There you go , a quick little project to create ! I hope you will enjoy working with these little boxes as much as I do ! With Valentines Day coming you could create a sweet little

I love these SILLY STICKS!

Do you know what a " SILLY STICK " is? No, it's not something you "beat yourself SILLY " with!! It's this great, (and I mean GREAT !) little stick available at Altered Pages made just for the mixed media artist! Hi all! Becky here today to share this great tool I used on a collage I finished this week...It worked so much better than a brayer to get my papers nice & smooth onto the "canvas"!! I loved that it squished the excess glue out the edges for easy wiping! But apparently you can use it for all sorts of things, like spreading paint & making texture in your paint! A very handy tool indeed!!! Anyway...on to the collage I made with this lovely image from the " Young Lovers I " collage sheet. "How Do I Love Thee" I used a 12x12 panel board "canvas" to collage various papers (most from my stash, but a couple from the Glitz collections), paint, modeling paste (for texture), & ink. Collaging is a lot

Valentine Mini

This is the cover of a little mini I made using the Valentine images. It is a paper bag book with lots of places to add photos and journal tags in the pockets.
