Passport to Art Day 4

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 theme is Packing and the technique challenge is using a mask.

These are my next few pages folded ready.

And here's the page for today.  I decided to glue the fold down to make a triangular page.  I brushed a layer of gesso over the page.

I used a Tim Holtz mask and Distress Ink.

I inked over the whole page and randomly stamped with a 'crackle' stamp that I think looks like a map.  I added the verse and the quote and stamped the squiggly lines.  I also cut out a stip of map paper from one of the pages I had pulled out of the book and stuck that on.

A closeup of how the next pages sit with this.

I stuck a transparent pocket on the page having first stamped a compass on the front.  I wrote on the tag.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Oh Bernice that's fabulous, I really must have a rummage to see if I've got a book I can alter as I'm loving your posts!

  2. Looks great! I'm having fun working on my visa page for now. The packing prompt may be one I skip for right now.
