My Book In The Box.......For Mixed Media Place

Yes, I'm still making pages in my 'Box Book'. Even tho, each page is slightly different in size, it is no different to working in an art journal. No pages as yet have been stuck in, so they can all be removed and worked on individually.  The pages are all worked on at different times, sometimes months apart, but, I try to keep a continuity throughout by using the same papers, stamps and colours, and with out deliberately trying to do so, it has developed a sort of Bohemian feel. Perhaps that has something to do with Finnabair's stamps and papers, especially her new range of stamps and stencils, which I have included in these two pages.

I have used the 'Basket' Stencil from Finnabair's new Elementals range as a background as well as the Sunrise Sunset Doily Stencil with art basics Modeling Paste and the beautiful patterned circular stamp from her new Trust The Magic set.

The little butterflies were stamped onto a scrap of paper that had a 'splodge' of Silks Acrylic Glaze on it, left over from some previous experiment. If you have never tried using Silks as a colouring medium, I would urge you to give them a go. The colours are rich and deep, they flow beautifully and can be thinned with water. I love the purity of their colours.
The stamp is from Finnabair's new Don't Forget To Fly set.

All products used in this project can be purchased HERE at Mixed Media Place Store.
