Altered Book Page - "Be Irreplaceable" & Pink Sat.


This was a fun spread to do in one of my altered books. I used up lots of scraps from other art journal endeavors. The background is made using paper that I used to spray other items with stencils. I just glued the paper down and trimmed. I love the vibrant colors. I also used the remains of a paper stencil that I had used to spray a red ink for another spread. That paper stencil had been used many times for many colors and was on its last legs for usefulness. I used the remains of the background paper to stamp on the quote from Coco Chanel. The image of the woman is from a greeting card and the car is a sticker. The paisley stamps were a one dollar purchase to use for the Bohemian themed book I was just working in as part of a round robin. I didn't actually end up using the stamps for that, but love them here. The quote was recommended by my two daughters. : )


I am linking up today with Beverly over at How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday.

Hi Tricia! So great to meet you here in Blogland! I'm following you now - and on Pinterest - and LOVE your mind for re-purposing your scraps! I'm jumping back into my art after a decade away when I was focusing on my performance programs. Still doing that - and some home-school curriculum for Curr-Click - but finding I lack inspiration and creativity when I'm not active with my artsy-craftsy stuff. Working on an Etsy and fresh perspectives in re-purposing things - just following the example of Christ who re-purposed us!
Joy!

I want to learn how to alter things. I have seen many people doing it with tags, etc. Thanks for the inspiration and for visiting me!
