Surely not yet!


Altered Book Lover has done a fabulous tutorial on Magazine Images and Frames.

                                    

My theme book is Leaves and I wanted to do the winter section where the leaves are either dried up and blown away or are evergreen.  This page is just frost on meadow grass and a few dried weeds.  The tape makes a partial frame.


This is a typical prairie winter- snow with a few leafless branches. Again, these are as far as I've been inspired and I'll probably add some more.


The colour of the evergreens is pretty much covered with thick snow but then there is always the decorative aspect!  I'd like to add a big gold circle to repeat the wreath shape and frame it.


The first two pages will be tipped in to the book.  The blue strip is the back half of the two pages that were cut to hold the tip-in in its place.  I'll glue all the tip-ins when the book is finished.


This 2 page spread is just shown with different lighting and an image I haven't quite figured how to incorporate.


I gpt inspired and meant to put the large round tree cut in a circle on the left blue page but I had a brain stall!  Oh, well, perhaps I'll find something better for the blue page. vbsigh  I used markers to make a thin frame.
That should hold winter for a while.  Now back to summer!

Wow! Color me impressed. Yes, these pages are awesome and I like your use of tape as the frame. Really adorable.

I'm glad you explained the pages would be tipped into the book. I wasn't sure when I first saw them. Thanks for the explanation. Yep, winter is covered!!

Wow, you are ahead of me, I have an idea, but still in the planning stage, so I guess I need to get working, loving the use of tape as a frame, you're doing such a good job, I haven't even made a page to 'tip in"...you are leaps and bounds ahead of me! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)
