If you want to join in with making an altered book through the month of July click through to the Passport to Art challenge blog.
Here on this blog I am going to share how I made the page for today's prompt. Today's theme is Packing and the technique challenge is using a mask.
These are my next few pages folded ready.
And here's the page for today. I decided to glue the fold down to make a triangular page. I brushed a layer of gesso over the page.
I used a Tim Holtz mask and Distress Ink.
I inked over the whole page and randomly stamped with a 'crackle' stamp that I think looks like a map. I added the verse and the quote and stamped the squiggly lines. I also cut out a stip of map paper from one of the pages I had pulled out of the book and stuck that on.
A closeup of how the next pages sit with this.
I stuck a transparent pocket on the page having first stamped a compass on the front. I wrote on the tag.
Thanks for stopping by.
