day one of artsycrafts

so, now that the artsycrafts warrington peeps have had day one, i'm free to post my projects now. i hope they are having as much fun as we did, i definitely learnt some new techniques and have a great christmas idea for the book album already!

here is project number one, this is the front cover of the shadow book. we used paperartsy's new line of papers, which are lovely to work with. i especially liked how alterable they are, we used gesso, inks and paints to make them our own. we also used ten second studio molds to make the frame and stamped images and backgrounds to decorate.

this is the inside of the box

in the afternoon, we created this shadow box

i loved using the inks and sprays in this project, i'm not totally happy with the way this came out, i think it's too wishy washy, but i was happy to learn the techniques. this project was layered in about 5 sections which gives it some real depth. i was actually very surprised how easy it was to work with the metal, once you learn the sandwich of metal, humungo tape and cardstock, anything is possible!!

i'll be back tomorrow with my sunday project...
