Welcome back to Part 2 of my mixed media art book with Altered Pages and DecoArt, our January sponsor. Today, I am going to show you how to make the book pages, also known a signatures, for inside the book. I will even begin to decorate them for you, hopefully to inspire and get your creative juices flowing.
But first, I want to show you how to put the two bookscovers together. Unfortunately, my computer went down before I could finish my last post, so I had to stop short of really finishing the covers. If you missed it and would like to see how I altered them, you can click here for the tutorial.
Here are the fairy quotes I found online, which I computer-generated and fussy cut to use on my pages.
"Where there is Joy, Laughter and Colour, Fairies will be found!"
"A rustle in the wind reminds us a fairy is near."
"Garden fairies come at dawn, bless the flowers, then they're gone."
