May Challenge at Our Creative Corner

It's time for another challenge over at Our Creative Corner! Jennie is our host... so I will pass you over so she can introduce her challenge theme :)

Hit the Books

I adore old book paper and old books and I am always glad to be able to breath new life into a dilapidated book which most people would consider throwing out!

For your projects this month we would like to see you searching through your stash for old book paper or books and create a project with what you find. You might want to use papers within your project or you might want to breath new life into an old book by altering it in some way. I hope I have chosen a challenge theme with huge scope for projects small or large.

Whatever you make let us see you give those old book papers or books centre stage!

Our Sponsor this month....

The winner this month will receive a huge bundle of goodies from our generous sponsor!
So, what did I make?
I am clearly on a bit of a jewellery 'thing' right now... I made a necklace..

I used book pages as the base for each 'leaf'..... glued to the twisted wire shapes..

I trimmed around them, then filled each leaf in with glossy accents, dyed with Distress reinkers to give the glossy jewel tones...

I can't wait to see how you use book pages in yout art! Link up (and see all the fab creations from the rest of the team) HERE!
