Cultural Influences Pages

Ugh! I don't know Blogger won't allow me to post the first pic in landscape you'll have to turn your head sideways to view it. I love the idea of creating secret door and windows in my pages. This Asian inspired spread has two doors that open up to reveal some simple advice. The background for the pages were created with an awesome sheet of tissue paper (cream colored) that had chinese characters printed on it. I simply collaged it down with soft gel medium and after it dried, added some pinkish-red accents with a Staz-on ink pad. Two types of tapes were use: black electrical and gold metal tape. The inside of the open doors have a pattern that I created with sequin waste. The knobs on the front of the doors were created with blank pendant charms (the kind you'd glue a tiny photo onto). I added a silver jump ring inside of each and filled the cavity with Diamond Glaze. If you click on the photo you can seem them a bit better.
