Another Glue Book Page

"House" Themed Tags for No. 8 Tag Swap

These are the latest tags from the No. 8 Tag Round Robin. This has been such a fun swap for me. I have not ever done tags before. Since it is October and almost Halloween, I did one of the tags in a Halloween theme. We were challenged to use some of our favorite papers and to be creative and come up with different roof lines for our tags. I primarily added a chimney to one style that had already been done.

Homemade Smashbook Pages

I make my own "smash-book" type journals (sometimes called Junk Journals) out of composition notebooks using leftover scrapbook paper, memorabilia, ephemera, stamps, ink, really everything but the kitchen sink. Here are a few completed pages.

"Alice in Wonderland Halloween" Altered Book Pages

These are two duplicate altered book spreads that I made for an altered book round robin. One was done as a mock-up for the one I made for another participant's book - her theme was "Vintage Halloween". I found this piece of scrapbook paper with Alice on it that I used as my inspiration piece and cut the image out for the focal point.  I used paint scraping, rubber stamping, paper cut-outs and ink splotches to do the background. All in all, it's very spooky, don't you think?
