Mixed Media Sunday - November

Hi, Everyone,

I absolutely love Art Journalling & have created quite a collection of loose pages.

As well, my husband knows better than to throw anything away before asking if I can up-cycle it in a project.  This is a win win situation for all of us since he has been giving me binder rings to create projects with.  Because of this, I decided to make a Binder Ring Art Journal from Scratch to store my beautiful pages in & I will be sharing this project with you too in an upcoming class.

I've combined Canvas Boards with Prima papers, square doilies, vintage sheet music, & silk flowers covered with sticky embossing powder & Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter to create the covers.  The flowers look like they are covered in SUGAR with Tim's clock peeking out!  It's a very pretty effect.  Of course to grunge it up, I added screw brads, a metal key hole & door knob which holds an elastic closure.  The book jewellery on the spine consists of lace trim, metal garter clip, & a crystal charm.  Inka-Gold "Old Silver" adds a touch of shimmer to the edges.

Have a look!
