This is the first page of my Angel Book, an altered 3-year pocket calendar. A friend started the theme by altering the cover with the words "Angel of Luck" so i thought I would continue with that. The angel stamp is Magenta. The woven music paper is scrapbook paper distressed with brown dye ink. The girl is from Altered Pages as is the tag. The wings are from a butterfly postcard. I will continue on in this book with an "Angel of" theme.

This page faces my tip in in my Golden Book. It is a reminder for me of what I did on the back of my real swap pages. Each cookie pulls out with a fortune, and has a (stamped) coin glued to the end. The fortunes were sent to me a long time ago, and I had saved them for the "perfect" project!
This is side 2 of my protoype. I painted the page red, and computer generated the words and the recipe. I stamped the cookies, and computer generated the sayings that come out when you pull on the cookies. The postage stamp is a Hero Arts stamp of the Wall of China. I decided not to use this as part of my swap, and did something different on the back of my swap pages.
This is the prototype I made for an altered book tip in swap. The theme is Chinese New Year. I have tipped this one into my Golden Book. I used the recent Canadian Chinese New Year stamp as the focal point. I painted the page with yellow paint, and stamped the green roosters on the side (Old Island). The booklet was stamped with a chinese words background and edged in gold. All the other words are computer generated, as well as the wheel. This is exactly what I made for the swap pages, but I added the coins at the bottom for my own book.
