New Mixed Media cj

Hello blog world
Well it has been a while since I posted anything hasn't it!

I am hosting a mixed media cj on UKS and am having great fun making my little book. Only a front cover so far but i thought I'd share it :)

This started as a chipboard blank. I cut a card copy of the house and cut this into pieces, these were then decorated in a variety of ways. Stamped, inked, painted, misted, embossed, covered in wallpaper etc. They were stuck to the chipboard and I did a bit of faux stiching with a gel pen around the edges. The door and window were chipboard that was painted in a mixture of brown, copper, gold and white paint to give a kind of aged look. The lady in the window was mounted onto a stamped background and the window has acetate 'glass'. This may be one of those occasions where I didn't know when to stop but I quite like the end result! Only inside cover, back and my actual page to do - good job its nearly a month until it travels anywhere :)

Thanks for visiting
