Tip-in Page swap

Over at the Outlaw Women's Scrapbook Emporium yahoo group, we have been doing a monthly tip-in page swap where we got a hard-cover book to use, added the dimensions of it to the database and what theme we want our pages to be and then each month, we get a partner to make a page to add into our book. This month, I got Amberlee to create a page for and her theme is bright, colorful, steam-punk, altered and her page is 4 3/4 wide by 8 in. tall. I really enjoy steampunk, but just never know what to do to create it, so I struggled and didn't even start it until today, the 26th! Yikes, it's due in 4 days! Anyway, I used my new Dyan Reavely sprays to color the page and dried it and then began. Lots of Tim's stamps and inks in layers on this and then his filmstrip ribbon and tissue tape here and there. I didn't want to add a lot of embellishments as these books need to close so I try to keep my pages relatively flat. I sure hope she likes it. I liked it so much, I am going to go make myself one in the size for my book while I have all the stuff laying out.
