New Altered Book Page


Finally, something other than a journal page!! This AB page was made with an ATC from Judy in my ABCanada group. A group of us swapped ATCs and we made AB pages from the one we received. The theme was 'Birds". This ATC page took awhile to formulate in my mind. I knew I wanted a quote, but couldn't find one I liked. I originally had another idea for the page, but once the page was painted it didn't go with my idea. The stamp I used popped into my head this as the perfect stamp to go with the owl, but I couldn't remember where it was (It's a Meer Image UM, I believe). When I found it and stamped it , the moon was lost in the darkness of the page, so I tediously colored in the moon with a Sakura white gel pen. I ran to the computer, knowing there has to be a good owl/moon quote somewhere, and I found it right away! So the page is born!

I love the idea of incorporating an ATC into your page. I have added pages of ATCs to my journal, but never a single card to a page. It looks great and is very effective. Thanks for sharing!

Don't you love it when it comes together so perfectly in the end? Love this quote!

The owl ATC is lovely and that moon is worth the extra time colouring it in. Isn't it great to find just the right quote.

How exactly did you find the quote? I am just getting into altered books and wondering how to find a good quote.

Love your page.

Sandy - I just googled owl + moon + quote and looked through the quotes. There are several good quote sites online, just search for "quotes" and they will all come up. If you want a particular theme, search (theme) + quote

Great way to show off an ATC. I do journal pages with the inchies I make for a way to have them "out" for show.
