Altered Shoe

Today I had some time off  so I decided to enter the September Challenge at NZ Paperchase.  The challenge was to create an off the page item using the colour teal and utilising lace or ribbon of some description. This is what I came up with.

Here is another of the pages I created for the NZ Paperchase swap. This page was for Sonya and the theme for this was  "My favourite...". So I have used all of my favourites: Favourite genre - Fantasy books and art, favourite animals tigers, leopards and wolves, favourite materials recycled, favourite artist etc.
There are lots of tags, pullouts and interactive elements for journalling and adding in photographs.




This page is covered with images from a crossstitch catalogue. I have them made an accordion foldout section at the bottom using an old book cove with room on both sides for journalling and photos.. The tag is also made with part of the book cover and a pull tab from a can.  The clear tags are made from recycled plastic packaging and the pulls for these are made from puzzle pieces.  The angel tag is in fact a mini booklet. The pages inside are covered with paper from the bottom of my paint spray booth.
The tiger photo at the top of the page also opens out to provide room for photos or journalling
The second page is again covered with images from a crosstitch catalogue. I have used a button from an old pair of jeans and attached it so that a tag can be hung from it.





The wolf charm is made from a scrabble tile. Again I have used pieces of book cover and images from an old calendar to create this page.





I really enjoyed making these pages and I love how they turned out.

I have been involved with a page swap at NZ Paperchase.The brief was to create two A4 themed pages for each person. Below are the pages I created for Donna. Her theme was Tim Holtz.

I also made her a tag.



These pages were  published in the latest NZ Paperchase magazine.
