I am so lovin’ these new Archival Cast designs that Sandra Evertson has come up with. These are so fun and unique. I wish I had about 20 more hours in my day to play.
I got my contact book back when I was pregnant with Olivia in 2007. I have had books before but never kept them, never really liked them. Then I came across this one and I hope I never loose it. I have been wanting to do something to the cover for a while now so I took the dive!
I am really into a the blues and greens right now, but I wanted my relic to POP out. I think I succeeded.
Below are some picture of the process.
I used tons of paints and mediums on this. There is such a learning curve to this it is crazy. But I am loving the out come and am pretty excited about doing my gardening journal next.
Enjoy the pictures.
Love the Pop on this!
I love my handle, These brushes are some that Little Miss O didn’t clean out after using them so I figured I would retire them with style.
Thank you for stopping today. Be creative!!!
