Altered Pages

 Hello and thanks for popping in,  I've not had much  opportunity to craft these last couple of weeks, but his little project,  done in short sessions, was ideal to do as normally I get very impatient when it comes to waiting for things to dry properly.
A few weeks ago Astrid did a wonderful step by step guide for altering pages, which if you're interested you can find here.    I've attempted to do something like this before, but have never been happy with the results, however I followed Astrid's process,as if I was doing an online workshop, step by step, and I think these are quite passable.
So  'Thank You' Astrid.
I've used papers from Docrafts  Madam Payraud throughout, bits of tissue and some stamping in Potting Soil Archival.  My little 'word stickers' were cut from a Tim Holtz sentiment.


My second page, again similar, but this time I also stamped the butterfly image, coloured with Broken china and attached with foam pads.

I've made a little mini book, again following Astrid's tutorial,  here.

I got a few more pages to show, they just need sticking into the little book first and I'll show.

Thanks again for your visit.

Avril, these pages are stunning and the butterfly looks ready to fly off the page. All the stamps that you've used and the colours just work together so beautifully, I love them. Crafty hugs, Sandra X
