Junque Journal #2 Pages

"Trust" Altered Book Spread

Two-page spread from my Women in White altered book. This page uses lots of layers of paint, stamps, lace, ribbon and ephemera. The woman's picture was something I cut out of a gift bag.

Discover Joy - Altered Book Spread

This is a fun spread I worked on earlier in the year and ended up adding some additional touches to it to give it more pizazz. Lots of goodies on the page - paint, stenciling, doodling, washi tape, ribbon, photos and cut-outs.
