To begin select some book pages or blank papers to alter. I happen to have several reams of a light sage green linen text weight paper. Since I don’t want the page to look green I’m going to use Stencils and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists to alter the paper.
Using stencils from the April and May Artistic Stencil Club with Dancing Dragonflies Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist Set to create patterns on book pages and copy paper.
For the below papers Linda used the stencils from the Dancing Dragonflies creative subscription box with the Dancing Dragonfly Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist set to create colorful textures on book pages and copy papers.
Taking the stencils from the Dancing Dragonflies creative box with the Dancing Dragonflies Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, Lily Pad with soft green tone with gold shimmer and Blue Water with a blue tone reminds me of the sea.
When all the papers have been altered, grab a few and cut or tear into smaller pieces. Adhere these pieces in a random fashion on a base paper. You can apply distress ink to the edges before you adhere, or leave them like I did.
Since I wanted a half sheet to put in my journal I decided to cut the page in half and created two journal pages from one master board.
On the back of the collage page I adhered one of the green papers that had been stenciled. This will create a decorative writing space.
Adding rubber stamps to the page takes it up a notch. I like using rubber stamps because it adds another layer of texture without bulk.
Added images from the Dancing Dragonflies Subscription Box adds a little more color and interest to the page.
