Returning to Altered Recipes

It's been awhile since I worked in my Altered Recipe book and I wanted to finish it before the end of the year. Also, my thoughts have turned to tomorrow's feast. What else could I do, but grab a page in my recipe book.

I'm not a scrapbooker, but this page looks like a scrapbooker made it. I matted the recipe and picture, and added the spoon embellishment, which I sanded, then colored with three ink pads. I'm SO impressed with my new scanner. I love how the little spoon doesn't distort the rest of the scan. The background is a napkin, which produced a really nice texture.

I tried to use various ink pads to simulate shadows on the page and ended up making more of a mess than anything else. Goes to show I should leave things well enough alone. At least you can click on the images and they will be big and legible.

Hi Elizabeth, I have been thinking of you and wanted to stop by to see what you have been creating and to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving! You did a beautiful job on your recipe pages, those biscuits do look so good! I also love the 2 Christmas ATC's, they are fabulous and I love the wrapping paper you used for them!
Have a beautiful and blessed day tomorrow with your family & friends!
