Altered Expressive Heart Note Book Pages

It’s time for another fun challenge over at the Craft Garden and the theme for this month is to use 4 of something from the challenge list. For my project I created a couple of new altered art pages for my Altered Mini Smash Notebook. I bought a little writing note book a while back and every once in a while, I add something to it or do a bit of painting in it. Until today I have never shared any of my pages and thought it was about time I did.

The pages are fairly simple for me, but had alot of fun painting the backgrounds.

The Challenge List to choose from includes: A Button, Ribbon, Spray/Mist/White Space, Doily, Polka Dots, Bling and Embroidery

For my altered note book pages I used:  A couple of  Buttons, A Gem for Bling, I drew and punched out Faux Polka Dots and included some Red Embroidery Thread, not quite Embroidery but hope it will do.

To start I painted and splattered all over my pages and addeded some splatter, rings using my glue top and drew random dots and circles in places. The main design I used on the right page is my own original digital stamp design Expressive Heart 1 which can be found on my CS Designs shop. Both the sentiments I used are also from my digital collections.

The green flower on the left page is a punch, and the amber gem on top of the yellow button is my choice of bling from the challenge list.

The little green dots (polka dots) to the left of my Expressive Heart were punched out of text weight printer paper and my choice for polka dots from the list. I also drew random black dots surrounded in white gel pen for more.

The Expressive Heart was colored with Prismacolor pencils and the direct to paper the direct to paper technique used around the edges.

Be sure to check out our challenge at the Craft Garden this month as well as what the rest of the team created and I look forward to seeing your creations.
