Loving this on-line class and I've actually started the collaged pages...this makes me very happy :}
This is another great e-zine that you download and work at your own pace. Make sure you go over to Patty's blog and check it out. Now here's a few photos of the pages I completed on my birthday...it was a gift to myself to sit down and complete a collage...what a great gift...taking care of yourself on your birthday. Some people like to go to the spa and pamper themselves, etc., but ART is in my heart and it feeds my soul. I know this sounds corney...but I'm too old to give a damn...lol ENJOY!!!
Years ago I started this Altered Book and the theme was "Dreams" so I'm continuing this book theme and adding the concept of this class, Fantasy Folded Altered Book. So the first two page collage is appropriately titled "beautiful dreamers".
This photo shows how the image "wraps" around the folded corner of the first set of "fantasy folded pages". I played with some "walnut inks" and misted them onto the pages with a small "Tim Holtz" mask (still waiting for my Glimmer Mists to arrive). I also used some stencils with a dauber and stamping inks. This book is old and the pages are very thin so I had to be careful with the walnut ink wetting the paper...patience is my middle name :}
I like the way the walnut inks and mask "bled" through onto the next page...a wonderful "mistake"...that's what collage is all about...playing and experimenting. If I didn't like this "bleed" then all's I have to do is collage an image over it...but I like this so I'm going to incorporate in onto the next two page set. I'm on a roll so hopefully by next week I'll have this first set of "Fantasy Folded Pages" completed...yeah!!
