80's Baby!

Hi there and welcome!

Stephanie here and man is this a very exciting month at Altered Pages.  You may have already heard, but this is worth repeating.  We are very honored to partner with IMAGINE Crafts for the entire month of June!   Make sure to check back all month long to see what these two talented groups create for you.

When I was going through my stash of goodies from IMAGINE Crafts there was a set of inks screaming at me to be the focal point.  I knew I had to use the Radiant Neon Ink Pads.  I loved the colors and they immediately took me back to the 80's...hence my title "80's Baby!"   You can see in the picture below I used the Electric Pink and Purple inks with small daubers to get a bright background to kick off this piece.

My project is a continuation of my creepy baby book, that you may have seen in a couple previous posts here  and  here , using the Arched Door Book from Altered Pages.  These fun little books are very popular and are back in stock after recently selling out!

While working on this the neon colors inspired me to load up my playlist of music with all my 80's favorites, Depeche Mode, Tears for Fears, Stray Cats, and some Bronski Beat.  The ideas came rolling in and it even reminded me of a few concerts back in the day so I knew where to head with this and I knew I had to give these 80's rock star babies tickets to a show of their own.

I had fun creating neon tights, full length lace gloves and Madonna inspired jewelry in this project.  I hope you enjoyed this fun node the 80's, an amazingly fun time in my life, recreated with amazingly cool supplies and tools from IMAGINE Crafts  and  Altered Pages.
