Pocket Altered Pages... STEAMPUNK Style!

I love creating Pocket Altered Pages, they have become one of my  favorite things to create!!!  AlteredPages.com carries a lot of products that can be used to make them.  Also this month we have a swap going on.... there is still time to join... you have until the 20th, see details at the bottom of this post!


The finished Pocket Altered Page!



About a week ago I shared a few photos with a promise to share the completed project... well I want to share a few pictures of my planning, arranging and rethinking that I went through to make my page.


I gather a lot of supplies (see list below) on my table before I start, it helps me create to have things at my finger tips!  If time allows I lay things out and let them sit over night.  Usually when I look at the layout the next day I make changes!

Bare chipboard was inked with VersaColor Black Ink, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  Embossing powder was applied several times to give it an enameled look.


 
I love the crow from  Little B™


 


Locking washers are a great addition to steampunk projects!

The finished cards for the page...
