I loved the name of this collage sheet from Altered Pages.com! Altered Pages and Niji Yasutomo Co. are cross promoting this month. I made my "Not A Red Valentine" using both company's products.
Altered Pages Collage sheet AP2055 "Not A Red Valentine"
Strathmore Mixed Media Paper
Niji Oil Pastels
Yasutomo Gel Xtreme Markers
Yasutomo Nori Paste
Craft Smart Paint Pen
Random Bits and Pieces: gauze, flowers, leaves, numbers, pearls
Gather your supplies.
Use the white oil pastel to draw words, flowers and hearts. Scribble over them with multiple colors of oil pastels. Use baby oil on a paper towel to blend the oil pastels.
The colors blend wonderfully! But, the white under them stays so you have these fun designs left. Score the paper into an accordion shape.
Trace over the designs with a Permawriter.
Add some dots and doodles, apply the collage sheet image and other embellishments using Nori Paste. I like the look of my Valentine. It's fun to use a different color for a change.
