Cardboard Shamrock Art Journal

Hello everyone, Cyndi here.  It is my turn to be the guest blogger.  I thought I would share with you today a cardboard shamrock journal that I created. I have just finished the "bones" of the project, but I'm sure you can see what a great start it would be for a fun, holiday-themed art journal.

This art journal is a great way to recycle cardboard boxes you may have laying around the house.  I also adore the texture that can be achieved when you cut away the top layer of the cardboard.  There are a LOT of artsy possibilities here.

You can leave the pages brown and decorate with ink sprays, stamps, etc.  You can also paint the pages as I have here, or add decorative paper or fabric. We would love to see your versions of the project.  You can share your efforts on our Facebook page.

You can see more of this journal, along with a tutorial at: Still Life With Stilettos

Matchbox Love

Happy Wednesday everyone! leslierahye here sharing with you an altered match box that I recently created. The theme is love. 

 One section of the inside has a lock and key on a red and lace background. Another section contains a note in a bottle, with a rose and a piece of a romance novel. The final section contains wooden word blocks spelling out the word love. 

The cover has bits from the novel, a bit of stamping and some feathers, beads, glitter and bakers twine. a picture hanger functions as a pull for the box with a heart charm dangling from some twine.

I hope you enjoyed my project! Thank you for stopping by!
