the never ending books........IMT childplay.


These are more pages to my twins books. The 4 pages are dealing with relatives and family. I simply paint the pages all over first, then apply paint and pictures where I want them. Once that is dry, I start adding......papers, stamps, more paint, ribbons etc. I love to spatter paint on the surface of the page to get an aged look. Sometimes I spatter with several colors to get more depth. I found the white pens on "Papaya" website listed on the sidebar on the left under Anataha's blog. The pens are wonderful and like she says, they write over everything. I am going to continue this book for each boy up to about 2 yrs. old. That is what I did for my granddaughter and pretty much filled the entire altered book:-D If you have never tried this, I would highly recommend it! What fun playing with their little images.
