Altered Art

Well - I have found my motivation...I'm just lacking time! It's the end of the school year and my daughter is graduating high school. That means I'M done with high school! But, it also means awards assemblies, memory boards, sending out announcements...

I have been able to complete my altered pages for the GAB swap (Girls Altering Books). The first photo above is from our first month's theme - "Faces of the Desert". I used a magazine background and photos of a ground hog and lots of crackle paint and pumice gel for desert texture.
The second photo is the page from May -the theme is "Birds". I used Claudine Helmuth's paints
and old music and dictionary pages for the house. The bird stamps are from Invoke Arts - just the head of the mama is visible, but she also is in a dress. The leaves are from a plastic branch of greenery from Micheal's. The words printed from a labeler "..birds of a feather".
I have a few other items I'm completing and will try to post before I leave on vacation...
