Book in a Box.........For Mixed Media Place

It's still going....that little book in a recycled box. There are now 18 pages.
This is where I finished last time.

.......................and here are the next seven pages, created with different mixed media and some happy family snaps. I've tried to keep the colours and techniques consistent, using the same stamps and stencils throughout, so the pages "flow".

A full list of materials can be found HERE at Mixed Media Place and can be purchased on line from the Mixed Media Place store HERE.
Thank you for dropping by. Wishing you a wonderfully creative week and may all your projects get completed.

Through Different Eyes.......For Finnabair Creative Team

You would be heartless to not be moved by the inhumanity that is taking place across Europe. Thousands of people fleeing the terror and violence in Syria. Leaving all behind. Left with nothing, and no where to go. I wish I could see the world through "rose coloured glasses", where everything is good. I want to see a world that is free of all inhumanity. My page is reflective of this idealistic dream.
I have used a lot of "steps" or processes to make this page, but none are difficult. You can find a step by step tutorial of how I've created this page HERE on Finnabair's blog            

Some of the techniques used are:  wet embossing, dry embossing, stamping, collage, image transfer, stencilling with modeling paste and embossing powder.

I have used Finnabair's beautiful Mica Powders to colour chipboard, metal and the butterflies.

Ecoline watercolor gets absorbed by wet modeling paste applied through a stencil.

A full list of all materials used can be found HERE on Finnabair's blog and can be purchased on line from her shop HERE at Mixed Media Place.

Thank you so much for visiting.
Enjoy your weekend and your freedom.
