Altered Art Pages

I went and had a full body message...
Man was I feeling great...
(I really needed that)

I come home to relax and
Next thing ya know I am dabbling..
I started with a little card board and
Moved to bigger card boards.. 
In Art Group this month we are going
To be doing transfers and needed some base pages..
I must say I loved what I come up with...
Check them out

I started with ATC sized
And used a pretty napkin I had

This is the back side

I will use gesso on this to tone it down and apply
A graphic over the top

Then I moved to bigger cards board
I used paints, and tape, a pen
Distressed it alot
this one also has a white napkin
In the center to overlay a graphic on it.

The back side I left plain to play with in class

Then I did this music sheet page
I will also layer a graphic on this one

And the backside plain for playing more

My favorite page using my pretty napkin
The teacher Susan had this fun stamp set
And she let me borrow it
I love them all

And the backside all pretty too

My second favorite one is this journal page
I will overlay a graphic in the lower right corner

This next one is especially made for my graphic overlay
Thats what out next class will teach
The transfer of graphics

Please visit Susan at Artful Musings and see her wonderful work

I will be tearing up my Victorian Trading magazine
To adorn these pages.

I hope some of you are still following along on my garbage disposal book
With me.. these will go in there when done
Those visiting for the first time check it out

I certainly had a fun relaxing evening doing these pages
I have a few others in the works and will show you them
With August Art Group post coming soon
See ya then

Happy Creative Crafting

Lovely coverings. Nothing like a good massage to make you feel good about everything. You were very productive.
