Passport to Art Day 3

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.  The theme today is Visa and giving yourself permission.

I started with a piece of paper cut to the size of my book and chose this 12x12 stencil.

I stamped through the stencil with blue ink at the top and the bottom.

I used a brown ink across the middle.

I cut the paper in to two pieces so that some of the page could show through.

I put the top piece of paper through my printer so that the words looked more official. Then after inking the edges I stuck the paper down.  On the bottom piece I didn't glue down the top to make a shallow pocket.

I added my signature, the quote and the verse and made a small collage of scrapbooking bits with a tag.  I didn't stick the tag down on the left side so that I could slip another tag behind it.

I inked and stamped the one side of the large tag.

I wrote my journaling on the other side.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Wow this is fantastic, I really must check out the link!

  2. Nice choice of stamp and stencil. I'm still contemplating which combination to use. But I really like the look of a script stamp. . .

  3. I like this idea very much - especially the script stamp - I have lots of those so just need to find a suitable stencil. J x
