And now for my projects today.  I’ve been wanting to try some mixed media projects so I dipped my toes in the water with this card:
 
PerfectBlend1
I used the Perfect Blend scene set with some Glitz alphas for my sentiment.  I applied some gesso to a book page (so the print wouldn’t be bold) and then stamped the scene stamp.  I colored with InkTense Pencils and a little water and used Distress Ink on the edges.  Finally I mounted it on more gessoed  book paper with some cheesecloth and dark brown mulberry paper.
 
For my next project, I have a super cute and fun little box using the new Take Out Box die set that I helped design!!
 
TakeOutBox1
 
I cut the box out of 12x12 patterned paper and assembled.  Then I tied it with some red twill ribbon and rustic twine.  Finally I attached a tag with a die cut sentiment  (both from the same die set) so you know there are treats inside!
 
As always, Karen is offering a fabulous hop discount! You will receive 15% off your entire order through November 27th!
