another one of those amazing members on our team
Tonya Trantham!

Hi everyone! I am Tonya Trantham and I was asked to share a little about myself here on Altered Pages.  I’m married to a wonderful guy who supports all of my crafty endeavors. I have one son, three step daughters, which all are married and one adorable grandson.

I have been crafting for as long as I can remember . My mom said she could give me a box of crayons and a drawing pad and I could preoccupy myself for hours upon end. I took art classes all the way through school, went to college on a art scholarship and received a degree in commercial art.

I currently design for Mailbox Muse,  Canvas Corp, Eileen Hull’s Inspiration Team, Crafty Card Gallery and guest design for The Robin’s Nest. Also I have been published in Craft Ideas and Scrapbook Generation’s Create magazines.

My favorite forms of creating is altering/upcycling and 3D art. You can see more of my creations over at my blog: .



  1. Great projects! so impressive!

  2. We love what Tonya Creates! She is a design star!!!!

  3. Your art is not only pretty, it's fun. You have a real sense of whimsy. :-)

  4. Tonya is a wonderful artist! xo

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
