Hi everyone.. Tamiko here! I live right outside Chicago, Illinois and we saw snow flurries several times just yesterday! Fall is more than here! I needed a coat and hat when I scurried to the grocery store this morning. That says one thing to me! I better get use to being INSIDE the house more than OUTSIDE, pretty soon.
I picked up my pocket scavenger and browsed through some pages. I love to get my family and friends involved in what I do, just as I like to be included in their various ventures. Some friends gave me the scavenge items and alterations for the following pages. I spent time indoors using supplies I would have never just thought on my own to put together. It was fun & I had a ball!
My first page came from Scavenged item: #71 UPC code; My alterations were: #59 to add music and #167 go away for 5 minutes, then come back and doodle!
I added multiple UPC codes that I cut from various packages to the page along the border, made the image from music papers, and doodled and slightly masked the UPC codes.. very fun. Doodles were done with my Signo Unibal gel pen..
My second page came from Scavenged item: #33 a rock tracing. My alterations came from #98 connect this item to something you love and #127 let the your gut tell you what to do... (sounds like a free pass to play to me!!)
My second page was a tracing of a rock from outside ::giggles:: At first when I saw the rock, I saw a heart.. then as I looked further I saw a coffee cup (could have been the fact that I needed coffee.. smiles). My gut told me to use my oil pastels and create a colorful background, so I did. Any page with coffee is ok with me.
My third page came from Scavenged item: #53 something left by an animal; My alterations are #167 to frame it and #3 to alter the edges.
My second page I decided to do cat paws.. and I honestly should have chosen doggy paws.. Since I am more of a dog person.. (smile) I framed it with washi tape and altered the edges by stenciling a few paint colors. I also left the words.. Cats leave paw prints.. in my driveway! ::giggle:: because they do! Must be a few strays in the neighborhood.. or some nosey neighbor's cat always leaving paw prints in the drive..
These pages don't have to be hard. They are fun and outside of investing in the Rummage and Ransack Kit.. you really can make numerous games with different ages and create awesome pages.
Have a great week all!! :)
