Altered Book Christmas Collage Pages

This image shows you middle section of our collage pages
This image shows you the back section of the pages. As you will see each page is different. We have used tissue and stamping to create most of the pages
This image shows you close up of the first page using christmas collage pieces. We all enjoyed creating this page together.
Next year we will be continue our altered book group with classes every first and third Saturday of the month. I've already created our pages for February you will all just have to wait and see what they are.
Enjoy creating

Altered Page Flags

This image shows you the page with the flags opened which is pulled across the page for all to see.
This is an image of the left hand side of the pages. We created this page with aluminum foil, alcohol inks and lumiere paints. The colours worked well together.

As you will see the flags are all sponged with ink pads and embossed through the cuttlebug machine and collaged with our background foil.
This image is the book opened with the flags laying flat

This page was a challenge for the group as we had to create our background paper and flags which stressed them a bit. But they finally finished their pages and all looked wonderful.
Hope you like it also

Altered Book Angel Pages

At the shop we are working through an altered book and this is the christmas angel page we created this month. I really enjoy creating these pages as it allows you to experiment with all types of techniques. Here we used tissue paper as the background and cut a pop-up angel in patterned paper and finished the page with silver coloured poinsettia flower and a wonderful poem (unknown) about angels. Every time we create a page our group says this is my favourite page. Hope you enjoy it as well.

With christmas coming we have been making christmas cards in class these last two months. Here is another sample of a card we have made this month at the shop. This is the new Nook&pantry paper range from Basic Grey. Another great combo for christmas.

Shaker Flap Card

We created this card last month in class and when you pull the bottom flap the top section opens up to reveal a special christmas message. The front of the card was created by sticker, acetate and foam for our front shaker flap. We use white flocking for snow in our shaker sectin. We use the beautiful Allison Ellis Design christmas purple glitter papers.

Napkin Cards

Last month with my stamping friends we played with napkins and pva glue and these are the result. We always have such fun experimenting with different techniques each month. Next month we have decided to go to lunch for christmas. We are all looking forward to a relaxed day together.

Grandson Photos Oct 09

We had a wonderful day with our grandsons on Sunday. Here are some great photos of them both. William just loves his little brother and so does Harvey love William as you can see from this photo. Harvey is now 5 weeks old and growing in leaps and bounds. Harvey just loves to sleep and eat, he slept all day just like the photos through all the noise in the middle of everything.
Take care all karenxx
