Altered History Book Art Journal - Pockets and Tags

This is an interective page that I did by making four pockets from folded pages. I painted all the pages in green metallic acrylic paint, then cut and folded them and glued them into place. I added a medallion that I had stamped on tissue paper to the middle. I added paper doilies that I had painted gold to the corners.
Then I made six multi media tags to go into the pockets on the pages.

This tag was painted and then stamped with a stamp from Le Blanche, made in Germany. I added some lace and edge punched trim in black cardstock. I then added highlights with a white gel pen.

This tag was done at Scrapfest in Kitchener in April 2009 using distress inks and a Tim Holtz stamp.

This tag was painted and stamped and then I drew circles to match the vellum sentiment.

This was stamped with a Stampin Up set called Pocket Fun.

This image was made with a stencil. I sponged ink through the stencil over the acrylic painted background. Then I added stickles to the wings and some on the background.

This tag was painted and sponged and stamped and then I added some cardstock flowers. I then stamped over some of the flowers.
I added fibers and ribbons to all of the tags to match the colours in each tag.
This project was time consuming, but a lot of fun!

Wow, such a gorgeous book page and love all the tags. The folded down pockets you made look great and the doilies are such fun corners.
