"Journey": an altered book for Mixed Media & Art challenge

Hello crafty friends !   Today I am sharing with you my latest entry to MMA challenge : Journey. Have a look at this gorgeous moodboard :  Usually, brown and gold tones are not my colours... But I instantaneously felt in love with this moodboard ! Everything was so inspiring, it was really hard to choose, but I went with a "use your stash".

Christmas card/Carte de Noël

Hello crafty friends !   It has been a while I didn't post...Sorry for that, a lot has been going lately and I had very little time for myself (which I spent creating, of course:)).

For this challenge, I created this card :  I used a thick sheet of black paper, but I don't remember the paperweight of it. Then, I used my Prima Marketing Watercolor Metallic Accents to make the splatters. I used three colors :... [Lire la suite]
