Mixed Media Monday


The theme at MMM is to show what we love to do.

I recently learnt how to do faux leather backgrounds and I love doing them. This is a page I did for someone who shall remain nameless for the time being, as part of a round robin journal I'm involved in. It has several other techniques i love. The little embellishment in the corner is stamped utee coloured with perfect pearls, the words are grungeboard, coloured with a mix of different inks and perfect pearls to give them a metal kind of effect.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
