Passport to Art Day 7

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 inspiration comes from the poem 'Adlestrop' and the challenge is to add flowers to the page.

This is today's almost triangular page.

I put a piece of masking tape down the right hand side of the page before spraying with Dylusions inks and mopped it with paper towel.

I felt it was a bit bright so I sprayed White Linen ink through a stencil and then removed the masking tape.

I added the flowers by inking through a stencil with Distress Ink.  I stamped the birds and added the verse.   I wrote my journaling on the tag.

I stencilled on the other side of the tag and added the quote.  I used a large 7 Gypsies paper clip to attach the tag.

This is how yesterday's page now looks with the paper clip.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. This looks so gorgeous Bernice! I bet you have inky hands!

  2. I really like the way all your pages look when put together. I've got a page set for Monday and hope to have a few more ready to post for Tuesday as well.

  3. I've been keeping up with the challenges and having a wonderful time! So many new techniques! I'm writing each one down as we go so I don't forget any!!! I wear a pair of thin gloves when I work with ink sprays, and it works perfectly. Just peel them off, and the paint is gone.
