so I have been super busy and that's why I haven't blogged recently. But I have been busy creating too, this is a mini book for a friend.. On her 30th birthday she had a photo booth, so I have taken some of the photos turned them into black and white and used an old k and company Masion collection pad.

paperartsy challenge this fortnight is miniature art for this challenge I decide to do miniature art journal pages which are 6.5cm x 4.5cm. I have used gesso and book paper and then used paint to
make a background.
Used a selection of stamps, fabric and machine stitching.

I loved using the cogs and watch bases, styling the grunge board accessories to accompany the picture. I also used some treasured gold on top of pieces to highlight them.
I have spent a while (as always) tittervating and fiddle faffing with this piece, but so glad that it has finally come together.
I think what pushed me to finish this layout was the inspiration from the paperartsy blog that has taken on a new format this year, it has really given me the push I have needed so far this year as my mojo has been seriously missing... I have another project on the go so am looking forward to getting that put up very soon!!
Watch this space.........

After embossing the ten seconds studio metal sheet with some Tim Holtz embossing folders, I die cut them using the same base die, painted them with black fresco paint, rubbed it with a dry cloth, then added salty ocean distress paint and rubbed over with the fresco chalk paint. I loved the final effect that this gave.
On in the insert I mounted some metal wire grid material and layered the picture with an angel wing heat embossed with stampendous aged ivory embossing enamel; some torn flowers; metal cogs; dusty attic which was rusted with some rusting powder and some torn off muslin sheets.
Again, I enjoyed this and it definitely was a challenge for me! Looking forward to the next one!
As you know, I'm on the design team for papermaze, and this was the layout I designed for my December post using the Bo Bunny christmas collection called Candy Cane.
