These are my pages for the September Chunky Book swap on AlterNative UK.

The theme was metal.
The backgrounds are book pages on watercolour paper. They are ripped and distressed and then I used ink and embossing powders to create colour and texture.

The silver paper is scrapbook paper.
The gorgeous shiny coppery paper with purple and pink wax was obtained in a background swap on ANUK sometime ago.

I can't remember who I got it from but I wish I could as I love it and really enjoyed putting it on these pages.

Oh I love these pages Alis - you've certainly settled back into the 'groove' then! Val

Great, a good idea - a page with metal!

Susan said...

Beautifully done. Nice texture. I, too, adore using old text. It always lends a special sense of mystery to a piece.

Micki said...

Great pages, Alis. Love the texture.

Fabulous work, Alis, I love both the art doll and the CBP. ;o) I think the waxy background you used might have been one of mine!
