Just for Fun - Mixed Media











This is my entry for this weeks Just for Fun challenge which is Mixed Media.

I used a little divider box and covered it with handmade paper for the texture.
Next painted it with acrylic paint, then cut 2 panels of patturned paper to fit into the cavities.
I then added to them some rubber stamps , a photo of my dad when he was at school and some petals from a hydrangea plant which i had dried.
I attached the whole thing with foam pads to give it a better effect.

It is nothing like how i intended it to be at all , dont know what happened to my idea.


Sorry its a bit late, weekends are always busy in my house.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend.
