Fancy Folds/Anything Goes

Hi Folks, I'm back with a projects for the Artistic Inspirations Challenge Blog and the theme this week is Fancy Folds/Anything Goes.

I am using an image from our sponsor this week QKR, called 'Birdhouse and Vines'. I wanted to make something other than a card, as I have several projects that I need to make to give to other people. I decided to make an envelope book using kraft envelopes, and some matching kraft card. The book involves a fair bit of scoring and folding, so I'm happy that it qualfies for this week's challenge title.

I have used some pretty scrapbook papers from my stash that I have had for ages, in a blue a yellow theme. This is not my usual colour palette, but it was a refreshing change to work with these colours.

I have lined each page with various different designs, and the pockets created by the envelopes will hold tags or other small items. Because the book is quite small, I was able to use small offcuts of card that I keep for such projects.

I have added a wooden embellishment to my tag, which I lightly dry brushed with cream acrylic paint to tone in with the rest of the colours I have used.

I hope that you will pop along to the blog to see what my Team mates have been making this week, and why not enter the challenge? You can make whatever you like, a card, tag, altered box, mixed media piece, etc.

I am entering my project into the following challenges:
