Naturally the first of the month also means a new challenge at Rhedd's Creative Spirit, so I'm back again this morning with a new project. As always Anything Altered Art Goes, and we have a brand new team waiting to wow you with their creations!
I decided to alter an A-5 ring binder to store dies in. I took the mixed media route, and though I'm only posting this now, I actually made it before the butterfly canvas, making this my first attempt at this kind of painty, inky, papery, mixed media goodness.
I started with a base coat of white paint, and then layered strips of paper over part of it. (Tim Holtz papers, though they're unrecognisable now, lol). I interspersed it with some washi tape and then went to town with my stencils and some home-made texture paste. I added some die-cuts, some wooden shapes from Fernli, a Prima angel and corner and some flowers too. I also added cheesecloth, which I'd roughly pre-coloured.
I also used several sprays and glimmer mists and the whole thing shimmers beautifully, though you'll just have to take my word for that, lol.
Isn't that angel lovely?
An angled shot to try and capture some of the sparkle...
I die-cut the swirls from textured cardstock, which added an extra bit of texture to the overall look.
So there it is, and this binder now houses my nesting dies (on magnetic sheets...).
Now I hope you'll go take a peek at what the new team has created for you all, and if you fancy dabbling with some altered art too (I know you do, you all keep telling me so! lol), then why not come and show it off?
Still hoping you'll have a splendiferous day!
