Another Altered Page

Hi Guys, for anyone who regularly sees my makes you will know that I am a bit of the style-flitter – I jump around the different styles having not worked out what my style actually is yet!

I’m not sure if it is just my need to try out everything, or my very short attention span or if, one day, I will settle on a particular style.

I’ve been having lots of fun with altered pages at the moment! So I thought I would show you another one, slightly different from my Alice In wonderland – Inspired make. I’ve called this one Language Bird. Ok so I’m not so good with naming my makes!

I thought I would enter this into the Free As A Bird Challenge over at Ink On My Fingers which holds the Sunday Stamper’s Challenge and as it is the 100 challenge it is sponsored by The Artistic Stamper and The Stamp Attic.

I’ve used a page from an old English encyclopedia and from a German book – however, as I do not speak German I have no idea what the page is about!


I’ve coloured the page with Watercolour wax crayons and then masked and used inks over the top. The bird and branch are Wendy Rhodes stamps and I’ve used Glossy Accents over the bird.


There is a bit of doodling and stitching and I used the Bazzill Templates for the stitched swirls. The stamp is from Japan.

Right off to flitter
(is that even a word, my spell check doesn’t seem to recognise it? Where is my Editor boyfriend when I need him?)
about with something else.

Hope you are all having a great Saturday

Kim
