Anything Mixed Media Goes

Hello and welcome to my Design Team piece for the first challenge at Artist Trading Post Exchange . The theme for this challenge is "Anything Mixed Media Goes"

We are a fortnightly, mixed media challenge, which can include any kind of project as long as it follows a mixed media style. Sorry no digi images allowed....

I have always admired The Gentleman Crafter and when I saw that you could download the instructions (at a very small Cost) for his Pyramid Gifted Mini, that gave me the idea to make a little travel journal book in a box.

Embellished with Route 52 Heart and Wings then painted with Silks Acrylic Glaze, the ribbon has been coloured with Distress Inks.

Some of the pages of the accordian book have been left blank so I can add photo's or memorabilia when I got back from my travels.
The Cherish Stamp is from Darkroom Door, Art De Fleur. The compass is Tim Holtz Classic no1.

I have used Paper Artsy "Chatsworth" paper and Tim Holtz idea-ology, both papers are a excellent weight and stand up to stamping and glueing.

Paper Artsy Mini Script Stamp MN61 on the cream arch which is the same as what is printed on the Paper Artsy Paper, and the leaf is cut from the same paper.

The Birds on the wire are a Crafty Individual stamp CI287

Just to show how the accordion book pulls out. 

And to prove  that the book does fit into the box, inside the box has been painted with Paper Artsy Paints and stencils then stamped using Eclectica EDY07

I have used the new Finnabair Art Basics 3d Matte Gel to paste everything together and fix the metal embellishment on and I'm very impressed with it.

Well I hope you enjoy my first post and I haven't gone on too much, and I am really looking forward to seeing what the rest of the team and you will create.

Thanks for stopping by
