I wanted to share pictures of some fun collages I completed this weekend for a project with my altered book group. The idea is to make gothic arched shaped pages using a theme of letters of the alphabet. We randomly drew letters and these are my 5. I'm really pleased with how they turned out and they're done a whole week in advance!
B is the first one above. My picture of Lina Cavalleri is from Digital Collage Sheets. I just love making cut up flower hats! I also added a cuttlebug embossed piece of foil tape on cardstock that I alcohol inked and sanded.
My next letter is N and I chose a numbers collage. This was fun to pick out stuff from my stash to utilize.
Next is T for Typewriter. I wanted an excuse to collage from Graphic45 paper.
W is for winter. I started with a Glimmer Misted background using snowflake screens, added crackle paint on the edges and acetate snowflakes adhered with picket fence stickles.
And finally Y for yellow. My little girl image is from Paper Whimsy, the butterfly stamp image from Piddix, and the tulip stamp from Oxford Impressions. This one also has a nice shimmery Glimmer Mist shine to it in real life.
Now I can't wait to see what everyone else creates - I think it will be a really fun book when they're all combined.
