My Art - Altered book page with ATC

Did a numbers mingle on one of my groups a while back and just had time today to get that layout finished! Each person made an ATC which they sent off to another member of the group and then we had to create an altered book page incorporating the ATC we received. It is a fun way to create which is sometime outside our comfort zone!!
I gessoed my pages to begin with and then added some stamped swirls in pink. Glued down some pink tissue paper strips - one on each side then added some white acrylic paint to tone down the contrast. Added some more pink swirls on top of that. Used coloured pencils - were the closest in colour to the ATC to write the TWO and Sharpies to add the dots and the "then there were" to the left hand page. Attached the ATC to the right hand page with double sided tape. Like the way it turned out!!
