This qualifies for a number of Mix challenges, and the most recent element I added to the page qualifies for today's Mix55 (to use a clear element).
I thought this cover page was done, but it clearly (haha) needed a little clear glass element on the left side which I added with crystal effects.
I am currently making a "MIX" paper lunch bag book. That idea was inspired by Mix36 (make a Mix project). I am incorporating MANY of the challenges into this one book.
I am not force-fitting anything, just going with the creative muse. With that said, I find that I do MANY techniques all at the same time.
The main design was inspired by Mix48 and basic shapes. You see various circles, trianges, rectangles (which are squares) and different mediums. The one layer was a piece of deli paper which I threw down on my gelli plate. (That is the warm orange rectangle across the middle third). The yellow circles were done with a stencil and acryllic paint. The Smaller circles were done with another stencil and glass beads. That ook me through Mix47, Mix 26, and Mix51 -- 47 I used glass beads, 51 I had camouflages and bumps, 26 I had stencils with 2 mediums.
There is a layer of washi tape (the red houndstooth). The triangles were hand cut and placed on with dimensionals. They are hand stitched together.
The booklet is closed with a little button closure. And the dangling hearts qualify for yesterday's challenge to use red. WT466
This is for my "one little word" of the year which is HOME. I've been gone so much that I really want to nest, stay home, love on my family, hang with my friends, create art, just be.
The phrase says "Home is purpose, home is love. Home is living unafraid. Go home." By Coach Bobbi
That is my wish for you. That you are home.
Thanks for looking, and sending love,
