Welcome! Artfully Musing is a blog dedicated to sharing art and the techniques and products used. I'll be showcasing collage, altered and mixed media art as well as miniature. I hope you'll check back often and are inspired. Thanks for visiting! Laura

NOTICE: AlphaStamps has moved to a new website. Unfortunately, I was not aware the product links in my blog posts would not forward to the products on the new website. This has affected both the links in the posts and my Collage Sheet & Digital Image Set Catalogs. I ask for your patience while I work to fix the links. I’ll be fixing the newest posts first working back in time. Lastly, I’ll fix the catalogs. In the meantime, if you encounter broken links and need to finding something you can either use the name of the product to search the new AlphaStamps.net site or you can email me using the “Email Me” button at the top of the left column of the blog and I will do what I can to help.

Marie at the Opera Accordion Folded Book – Designed for Alpha Stamps

I designed this accordion folded book for Alpha Stamps.
The bookbinding tape that I used on the spine was originally white.  I tea dyed the tape to give it a more antique look.  The tape lost some of its tackiness when I soaked it in the tea so I had to add some additional adhesive.  The design on the spine is a rub-on transfer.
Alpha Stamps Products Used:

Young Marie Collage Sheet
Paper Doll Fans Collage Sheet
