i have been a way for a while but now have the time to start making and showing you some of the makes i have been doing while i have been away.
I have been loving starting to learn more about mixed media and i am starting to implement that into the books i make.
I decorated a passport size notebook, first covering it with paper and then adding layers of a heavy gesso using various things to build layers.
I started with a metal frame on the base, followed by paper straws and the some laser cut chipboard.
I filled the surrounding small gaps and edges with purple micro beads. making them look distressed with gesso and distress ink.
Finally adding a quote line and some posted glittery flowers. All edges and papers distressed and inked.
