Lisa's altered book

Finished up my pages in Lisa's altered book. The background is tissue paper fused to felt and covered with gel medium and lots of little pieces of  scrapbook paper, tissue paper, pages from a book & sheet music. Stamped all over, painted and more stamping. Quotes on vellum sewn on by machine. All beads sewn by hand. The 2 collage art pictures from a sheet bought at tentwostudios.

collage sheets

I am a huge fan of collage sheets. I buy them everywhere and anywhere, but one of my favorite spots is tentwostudios. Her Sheets are rockin---and as a special holiday treat the owner is unveiling a free sheet everyday for the 25 days leading up to Christmas. How sweet is that?

marbleized paper

For this weekends challenge over at I decided to do some marbling of paper.
Easy peasy but gives fantastic results. Put some water in a shallow pan, drop or 2 of dishsoap,  drop in some acrylic paint, watercolors, reinkers, pearl ex,etc what ever is on hand.  Carefully swirl a bit and lay paper face down in your water. Press very lightly and remove & let dry. You can usually get 2-3 pieces of paper from one mixture. Rinse out your container and try again. No 2 backgrounds will ever be the same.
