A book of dreams - and how to alter Glasssine bags with Rubber Dance stamps

Hello and welcome, Anita from the Design Team here today.

I want to show you my ongoing project that is huge! I make a book from scratch, a so-called digi junk journal. And inside the book I want a few pages of glassine bags that I can put tags etc. up in and behind. So I came up with the brilliant (?) idea to make my own glassine bags (Just because it is not possible to get these in Norway), and alter them with Rubber Dance stamps. And here they are, my homemade glassine bags:

Here is a picture of one of the bags inside my book:

You can easily make your own glassine bags. Only use baking paper and glue, pattern scissors and a round puncher. I also used some Archival ink and a few stencils on the background just to achieve some interest.

Stamped I've used is:

Think Again

Fly-fly flowers

I hope I gave you some inspiration today. Thank you for visiting.

Hugs, Anita
