Morning guys,it's time for mixed media time over at That Craft Place

This week I have made a book,using the fab new graphic 45 papers called world's fair.

I have added lots of pockets,and place to add photos,and writing. I adore these papers,they are so so lush shame to cut them up,but they are brilliant for books as that way you can use both side.

Here I have made a page,so I can add,photos this of course is my wee,grand daughter Lucie.

This is the front of the book. I have fussy cut the papers,to add dimension. Then added some wee gems,I have used ribbon this time to,put the book together which I cut from my cricut.  The corner is painted with some blue gilding wax.  The frame I got from one of my lovely DT buddies,along with the corner,one the oval one I painted black,then added some tiny beads which are for nail art. I cut an image of the lady,and added it to the frame using silicone glue.  Then added few flowers etc then covered the whole book in,modge podge matt,I gave the book,3 coats so it protects,the cover and back.

Well that is my post for today hope you like, my creation,and we would love to have you join in the mixed media team over at That Craft place which is HERE

All paints,and papers available at That Craft Place.

Have a lovely day,hugs Cherylxxxxxxxx
