Today i'm sharing a journal book cover..

 A beautiful hand bound journal filled with recycled paper pages 
a gift given to me last Christmas from the very talented creator 
of PaperBabe Stamps Kim Costello, it's blank canvas inspired 
me to design a cover dedicated it to PaperBabe things.. 

Stitching Vintage Doll Paper to the cover an Ornate frame 
holds a die cut and stamped portrait head wearing CELESTIA 
pre cut hair all coloured using paint, copics and pencils. 

With lace added to protect it's hand stitched spine a 
fibreboard Whimsical word glued to greyboard is distressed 
and painted to compliment colours and complete it's design.

Always Bee KInd

 Hello everyone, 

A quick journal page share today using just one 
woodware stamp, honeycomb bigz die and offcuts. 

The Bee I'm both inspired and fascinated by, 
working tirelessly to pollinate and keep the circle 
of life turning, where would we be without them..

They bring colour to our world..

Wishing you all a creative weekend 

Hugs Tracey xx

Creative Artiste's Mixed Media Challenge #70

Hello Creative Friends, 

It's the first Friday of a new month so time for me 
our theme is always *Anything Mixed Media Goes* 

This month i'm sharing a hand sculpted clay pot 
I call her *My Year in Dungaree's* 😊

Behind the scene's i've been working with lots of clay this year. 
Thought i'd share this piece inspired by Toni Burt. One piece of 
air dry clay sculpted into shape it was important to make it's 
shape as organic as I could to resemble my worn out dungaree's. 

Adding stumpy feet to the base, mark making seams and creases
she was left to dry for days before sealing and painting.

The blues in this treasured napkin gifted to me by my friend Dorthe 
really complimented it's design. Sealed again with matt gel medium 
she was ready for some extra embellishing.  

Lined with gilding flakes she wears TH hardware 
and a fashioned Jeans button crafted from clay..

I'm not sure if this little video will work but 
if it does it will give you a 360 view and show 
areas hard to photograph like her saggy bottom 😂

Filled with treats she's a good craft table companion. 

If you like to mix up you media why not share your creations 
with the Creative Design Team HERE and join in with our 

Look forward to seeing your Mixed Media Makes.. 

Stay safe & Creative
