Louisiana Masked!


I love Louisiana! I would love to share the feeling that exist there. The warmth, love and fun that we all share. I know that many people think of Louisiana as a place filled with party living lifetyles, Mardi Gras and indulgences. So much more than that. Louisiana is rich in history, dialects, and food. I hope that you can experience all of its beauty and people. I hope you enjoy my Mask of fun.

Halloween Wreath for AlteredPages Design Team!

I am so excited about Halloween. I don’t really do much for the day but love to make fun stuff to enjoy it. I love using stuff that normally would have been thrown away. Yes my husband is always chiding me about my hoarder ways. I saw this “craft” paper packing and how to save it for something..It worked fabulously with this project. I want to remind all that there is no glue holding the paper to the wire. I used only the chalk paint to make it stay. It is very sturdy. I love all of the great supplies that AlteredPages has. These items help my imagination soar. I also found by using the little Pots I am more organized…FEAR, FEAR of organization…that really scares me. I hope you enjoy my post!




Supply list:

Wire Hanger
Craft paper or newpaper cut into squares 5 x 5
Paper plate or tray for painting
Brushes (one for painting and a toothbrush for splattering)
Metallic paint (on hand)
gloves (optional)
Tacky glue (on hand)

Using Rubber Cement as a mask (frisket) for the eBrush!

So often, like many of you, I use smaller images for my projects. It is hard to cover them to retain color or prevent color from infiltrating in. Well old school methods really work! I use rubber cement put on with a very tiny brush or toothpick with tip crushed. Now make sure that you spread to the edge of your stamped image or color might bleed. Also don’t over-spray near the edge or the color might wick into the paper under the cement.


Next spray your image carefully not to linger long on the edges of the rubber cement. I love using Spectrum Noir markers on my images!


Next comes the reveal! Using a rubber cement pick up (glue runner eraser) I remove gently the rubber cement. It doesn't lift the paper.


Here is my “cleaned image”. Using some techniques to mask areas can really lead to fun and not feeling overwhelmed when image working.

Merry Altered Christmas Jean!

I loved crafting a special item for Jean Moore the wonderful energy filled force behind AlteredPages! Jean is filled with so much positive ideas for women. She knows how far we have come and that this is really only the beginning. I used one of altered pages collage sheets to show a young female factory worker in the sweat shop pausing for a moment to reflect on the Dream! I hope that we all continue the journey and pursue our dreams of equality, equal pay and enjoyment of many of the rights that our ancestors fought  for women.
I used chipboard for my base. I coated it with white gesso from AlteredPages. I used a stamp from one of the Box o' Rubber from AlteredPages. I also used the Antique Sewing collage sheet from AP. I used my on hand eBrush to do the red tint and the oversprayed it with the black marker. I used an on hand wand stamp. The glitter effect was created by using some glitter mixed with Art Anthology Crystals from AlteredPages. I used another on hand stamp for the word dream but used my Delicata silver stamp pad and also my favorite StazOn jet black ink pad! I used an on hand adhesive for all. I then coated with a layer of Crystal Lacquer waiting tilll it thicken and drawing my brush through it for brush strokes!I added some gel pen color to make the focal areas of interest as well.

I love the cool products that AlteredPages carries. The products make my expression of art so much fun!

Jean thank you so much for all and I hope that you enjoy your book!

You can see all of the links for the pages in Jean's book here.
