crows

were my inspiration for this book page that I made for my friend, Maureen's, Halloween book.  This page was for the first exchange we did in April:


I found the quote somewhere online and that was my starting point. Random strips of patterned paper were cut and fashioned into a fence for the large crow to sit upon. More patterned paper, a chipboard jack-o-lantern and some sparkly pipe cleaners were added.  Here is the back of this page:


The focal image is from a collage sheet and it was framed in with some copper German scrap.  The paint spatters are actually a stamp from DeNami Designs.  I used a Tim Holtz ticket to add my name and date for this page.

I also wanted to share with you a little book I am working on using Gelli print pages. 



My Gelli plate is the 6 x 6 size, which is perfect when making cards and smaller projects.  I selected several prints to use and cut them down to 5.5 x 5 inch pages,  or smaller.  Some of these pages have prints on the back and some do not.  I will just add more inks or stencils or stamps to them as I go.  

I punched two holes for the binding and threaded a fuzzy hairband through them from the back. A pair of chopsticks were used to hold the band - looks pretty and cool!!  :*)  The sequins were all the embellishment I wanted because the print itself is so gorgeous.

Have a wonderful weekend!
