I loved the name of this collage sheet from Altered!  Altered Pages and Niji Yasutomo Co. are cross promoting this month.  I made my “Not A Red Valentine” using both company’s products.

Altered Pages Collage sheet AP2055 “Not A Red Valentine”

Strathmore Mixed Media Paper

Niji Oil Pastels

Yasutomo Gel Xtreme  Markers

Permawriter Black Marker

Yasutomo Nori Paste

Craft Smart Paint Pen

Baby oil

Random Bits and Pieces: gauze, flowers, leaves, numbers, pearls

Gather your supplies.

Use the white oil pastel to draw words, flowers and hearts.  Scribble over them with multiple colors of oil pastels.  Use baby oil on a paper towel to blend the oil pastels.

The colors blend wonderfully!  But, the white under them stays so you have these fun designs left.  Score the paper into an accordion shape.

Trace over the designs with a Permawriter.

Add some dots and doodles, apply the collage sheet image and other embellishments using Nori Paste.  I like the look of my Valentine.  It’s fun to use a different color for a change.
