Time for another great challenge over at Creative Artiste this month.
Our theme is always
Please make sure you use multiple mediums on your projects. Please respect that we do not currently accept Instagram entries. Only correctly linked blog entries please.
This is the project I made for this challenge. I made this altered art journal for a friends birthday.
I used an old style photo album. I wish I could show it to you because it was a beautiful find but I managed to delete the pictures I took of it. The cover was leather and each page had a second sheet of tissue page protecting it.
The pages themselves are a very high quality paper which I think will be good for sketching, water colour or markers.
I used several napkin pieces for my image that I collaged. The layered pieces behind the image were from my scrap box. One of the papers was from some glass I was unpacking and the other piece was from a paper bag made out of pineapple skin. Both papers were interesting and lots of texture.
