June Challenge at Creative Artiste

Over at Creative Artiste we have another fabulous "Anything Goes using Mixed Media" Challenge, sponsored by our very own team member Judy McKay who is offering a lovely stamp bundle as a prize.

I have been coveting the Screen Sensation silkscreen printing kit ever since it first came out and my lovely Mum, very kindly bought it for me when it was on a recent PoD on Create and Craft!!! I decided I wanted to make a little sketch journal for my holidays to I used chipboard shapes to create a cover which I gessoed and then used mod podge to stick muslin on to. I then used my Screen sensation to print butterflies on to the muslin. I chose a bright blue ink with a plain white background as I love the freshness of the combination and it reminds me of salty seas and sunny skies!
To complete the look I added  a butterfly charm made from stamping text on to card and then die cutting a butterfly shape and overlay. The book and charm were punched using my cropadile and eyelets were added. I used binder rings to construct the book and filled it with white mixed media paper.
Happy Crafting,
Denyse x

I would like to enter this for
Crafters Cafe Travel (this was made for my holidays!)
