Today we are starting a new challenge at More Mixed Media. As always, our challenges are anything mixed-media goes, and this time with optional red. You have four weeks to enter the challenge, and there are prizes of digital papers for three winners. I made two different pieces - a tag, which is also meant for Michele's 'hearts' challenge at Tag Tuesday, and a book box with matching book. I got given some of these boxes a couple of years back and this is the second one I have finished up to now.
The tag was collaged from various scraps on a spare piece of embossed card. The flower fairy tag was in my stash. I added a tiny scrap of lace and a vintage German scrap rose. I then sewed it onto matting in red and black and added a few hearts:

The book box was textured with structure paste and then given a coat of paint in blue. I was hoping that more blue would show through the paper napkin, which I affixed with art-potch. I gave the whole box 2 coats of clear varnish to make it more durable:
I made a small notebook from canvas covered with the same paper-napkin and tied it with red and yellow ribbons. I sewed round the edges, and used some red distress ink to colour the edges:
The inside was also covered with the same napkins:
The photos were taken on this day one year ago - I think we are all longing for spring:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
