Mixed Media Monday "Inspirational words"



Inspirational words is the theme at MMM. I altered a little jewlery box. It is a birthday present for a friend. Innocence is the word that inspires me at the moment. There is far too much sinicism in the world.

Oh no Astrid this is absolutely awesome. Really lovely box. I´ve missed the right words, for that what my eyes see. Love them.

Astrid, this is exquisite, everything about it. The image is perfect for the inspirational word and the lace and butterfly just set the whole work off to a tee. Wonderful work. Lucky friend!! I have four very young grandchildren who are innocents now but it is a hard and difficult world they face in the future.

Love what you have done with this box!!! I made a Bin-it-all box and always felt it need to be kicked up a knotch...something like this would do the trick.

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!
