The November ALTERED PAGES BLOG CHALLENGE has been announced! 
And look at the terrific prize package that goes to the winner!
...lots and lots of goodies - almost a $50 value!

The theme this month is Rust. It can be any project you like - a card, an ATC, an ornament, a mixed media collage or assemblage - the only limitation is your imagination! Just use rusted colors - or rust!

Rules are simple:
For your project you must use at least one item from Altered Pages (i.e., collage sheet image, ECO art board, tags, papers, etc.) - and don't forget to tell us what it is!
Link up your entry using the InLinkz Tool at the bottom of each challenge post, remembering to link directly to your photo of your entry or your blog post.
Most important: HAVE FUN!

You have until November 30th to link your project photograph.
And the top 3 projects, as voted by the design team, will win the Altered Pages 
digital collage of their choice!

This is my offering for this month's challenge ... a rusted Christmas ornament. I used a rusted tin circle, a rusted key, a rusted flan mold, a Tim Holtz bottle brush wreath, some rusted ball chain, and a Tim Holtz chain tassel. I used a bottle cap from Altered Pages, and Altered Pages collage image, cut with the special bottle cap image die cutter (which works especially well with the Genius Die Cutting Magnetic Platform, which holds your die exactly where you want it!), and layered over with Sakura 3D Crystal Lacquer, with just a touch of the fabulous Terri Sproul Mica Mixers for shimmer and shine!

Now, it's time for you to get your supply goodies in front of you - and go make something beautiful!
