Brr..woke up to out first frost this morning, not too bad though, and as I didn't have to go out in it who cares right..I just sipped my coffee and looked out the window at the pretty white stuff and muttered..Welcome Winter..
So onto todays project, another mixed media piece using the cardboard that your pillow cases come wrapped in and then they are placed perfectly in those plastic envelope pouch things.....and never to be returned back into them after you removed them.
So here we go...
So I started with the cardboard pillow case insert..it already had those score lines down them so that saved me effort..
Painted it white and added the alphabets letters and flowers,buttons, butterflies an any other nick knack I could find..
Then covered the whole book with white paint..
Then black paint...every inch of it...
Out came the sprays...my new Kaiserkraft sprays, which are now my favourite..
Orange, red, gold and dark green...
Oh, I love to do this, to watch the colours peek through all that black, when in fact they are just sitting on top..
The papers flowers and leaves etc take on the look of metal..
I folded plenty of sheets of printer paper, trimming and gluing every single sheet individually to make the pad inside..and treated the top with gold lace out of my stash...
There's looking down onto the book..
And I finally added sequins in gold and antique bronze, all done..
Thank you so much for stopping by..I'll see you in a couple of days..
