Passport to Art Day 16

If you want to join in with making an altered book through the month of July click through to the Passport to Art challenge blog.

Here on this blog I am going to share how I made the page for today's prompt.  Today's virtual visit is to Smyrna.  The challenge today is to use stripes on the page.

This is the next page in my book.

I decided I would use the rest of the page on the left and all of the next page.  I covered it all with gesso.

I folded the fold back down on the right hand side and put the masking tape across and put gesso on that small part also.

I coloured the pages with Distress Ink and then put double sided tape to form a pocket.

I used 3 different types of washi tape to form the stripes.  I also attached the quote and the verse.  The ink needs to be dry before you attach washi tape otherwise it doesn't stick.  If you have problems use a small amount of gel medium to hold the tape in place.

I thought it all looked a bit bare so I inked through a stencil.

I used the same stencil on one side of the tag before journaling on the other side.

Thanks for stopping by.
