- Create a 5 1/2” x 12” piece of floral paper; tear one
long side so the white edge shows. Create a 2” x 12” piece
of pink paper; tear one long side so one white edge shows. Layer these
together on top of the brown stripe paper and glue.
- Mat the photo on pink paper with a 1/4” border. Glue to the
left side of the page, with a coffee cup insulator at the bottom left
- To make the altered alphabet, bend wire to the shape of the letter
“M” adding wooden beads to the ends. Tie a length of leather
cord into an “O” shape, knotting at the top. Cut out a “C”
letter tile and mount on foam tape. Cut out an embossed tag and add
strips of cork into the shape of an “H”. Cut out an “A”
alphabet tile and mount with foam tape. Add the letters to the top of
the pink paper, using glue dots for the some of the letters. Stamp the
words “madness” onto the large embossed tag and add brads
to each end. Attach at an angle to the upper right side of the page.
- Create a tag out of the pink paper with the Tags Template. Cut a
3” square of the floral paper and tear the top so the white edge
shows. Adhere to the bottom of the tag and trim to fit. Add computer
journaling on ivory to the tag and tear out, chalking the edges if desired.
Punch a hole in the top of the tag and add a piece of fiber. Tuck the
ends of the fiber under the “madness” tag and glue down
- Cut out the definitions and chalk the edges. Mat on brown paper with
a 1/8” border. Layer together as shown and glue in the lower right
corner of the page.
A Tip from Paris:
Three-dimensional embellishments and alphabet tiles make a great altered
alphabet page title. Click here
